What are you most proud of? This was mostly an airplane project so I'm most proud of being able to keep a multi-row stitch pattern properly aligned!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Consider using wooden needles. I love my Addi circs but the metallic yarn slips very easily on metal needles! Also, metallic yarns are hard on your skin. If you are sensitive, you might want to use a contrasting color yarn with just a hint of shimmer rather than an all-out metallic yarn.
