What materials did you use? Wool fingering weight yarn that I overdyed.

What are you most proud of? I overdyed some yarn that was in very light colors with food coloring like you would have in your kitchen for making frosting. I love the dark plum colors that I got.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? There is lots of garter stitch which I find relaxing but don't get so relaxed that you forget to do the lace in the center panel! Ask me how I know...
