What are you most proud of? I learned how to do the Join Base Triangles and the Live Top Triangles with the instructions in the pattern. The rest was really easy to follow.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? After you have done the first 2 projects, go ahead and try this one. You'll love finished result.

I have a question. In the bottom and top triangle tiers I get a hole at the point. Is that normal, or is that a tip that you can share? I wound up just whipping the triangle tiers to the seed stitch rows to close up the holes.

It didn't take very long, either. I am now starting on the Lake Monterey. I have a question. In the bottom and top triangle tiers I get a hole at the point.

It is the nature of the transition from "regular" knitting to triangles due to the movement to a biased fabric. Mine just has the holes. Since they are regular, I consider them a part of the design!

That's what I thought, too. The bottom looks a lot better than the top, so I considered that a design element. The top, with all of the kfb stitches, looked a lot messier. Maybe I should have done M1 instead. Any comments about Lake Monterey?
