What are you most proud of? I can read charted lace now, and not get a headache.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? USE LIFELINES!!!! This tip saved me countless times, as I'm a little scatterbrained and easily distracted, what with 3 dogs, two teenaged boys and one husband (which is technically the same as having an additional teenage boy and two toddlers)

Oh that is REALLY nice. I love the shades in the yarn as well and they don't distract in showing off the beautiful lace pattern. My Skywalker is at present WIP. Am about to start the final increase round.
