What materials did you use? The wool is actually micro-fiber (totally acrylic) but it soft on the neck and comes in funky colors.

What are you most proud of? Laura, the teacher teaches how to make the lace but also gives advice on balancing the lace and how to read your knitting. Thanks to that I've been able to change the design of the shawl a bit and really got to play with lace.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This course is perfect to understand lace. It is only my 2nd knitting project as I recently learned (in may) with Stephanie Jappel, and it went smoothly. This teacher is good and crystal clear !

i love the drape of the shawl.

Thank you for your comment ! The drape is probably due to the mico-fiber I used but maybe also because I changed the pattern a bit and the stitches before the border are reducing the stitches of one every nine stitches, instead of keeping the stitches count the same (not sure I explained that properly ;( )
