What materials did you use? Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light, fingering weight 3.75mm/5us needles, stitch markers, yarn needle.

What are you most proud of? Probably the transitions of each pattern into the next. The small leaf pattern is one I made up, the leaf edges are slightly raised and every leaf is outlined with purl stitches so the leaves aren't just 'flat'. I also made up the border .

What advice would you give someone starting this project? There's some wrong-side row patterning which is simple but could get confusing if you aren't using stitch markers between motifs. tip: When working back on wrong side rows, take note where yo's should be on the previous row and count as you work back across each motif repeat. Yarnovers can be sneaky and try to trade places with a neighboring stitch!

The bottom point (the last 4 leaves, etc. were handled masterfully! How long have you been knitting lace? If i may ask-what bind off did you use?

Glad you like it! I'm not sure how long I've been knitting lace, several years at least I think but my first published lace design wasn't until 2010. I used a stretchy purled bind-off, I think it gave the shawl a nicely defined edge. I give instructions how to do it on the pattern. :D
