What materials did you use? Yarn: Lane Cervinia/Plymouth Yarn Company Le Fibre Nobili Taj Mahal (70% merino wool, 22% silk, 8% cashmere; sport weight); 187 yards/50 grs; 3 balls. Needles: #8 circular needle, #9 circular needle, #10 needle (optional, for binding off).
What are you most proud of? This is a basic pattern that's worked to size. Gauge isn't all that important so you can use whatever yarn you like. It's very flexible.
What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is very easy lace but because there are so many yarn-overs, it's a pain to fix if you make a mistake. Use a lifeline if you have to rip back. When you do the ruffle you'll end up with approximately a gazillion stitches so use a long circular needle to hold them all. And plan to spend a little time binding them all off.
