What are you most proud of? That I did it! I pressed on despite complaining so much people must have been sick of me. But I pressed on last night, finished the ruffles then blocked it. I was hoping it would be bigger, as I am a very big lady, but I will try to make the larger Clarus pattern. I didn't even know if I would see it to the end . . . . but I did!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Try to watch to whole series first so you have an idea of what is going to happen. Also, it will make it less scary as you work through it. Laura is very personable and when you have questions, she answers within 24 hours, which is great. I have a course where questions are now handled by class members because the instructor did not answer regularly, or at all.

I up loaded 6 pictures but it's only showing one. There were mistakes of course, because I refused to rip out stitches when I made a mistake. But, after blocking it, the shawl seemed small ( I worked on the regular design). My question is, does Laura teach a class for an easy-to-knit large LARGE shawl for large-size women? I know there is the large life shawl class, but some reviews said it was not for beginners, and I definately am a beginner. Is there/will there be a class for a really large shawl in the future? I plan to do Clarus in a larger version, but I don't know if that will be large enough. Just a thought.
