What are you most proud of? I finished it! Even though I had to knit every portion of it at least twice and in some places up to 6 times!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be patient and take your time. Laura is a great teacher and a genius designer.

For the Plasma stitch, I added the beads to the yarn before I knit, but they do slip around. For the Nova edging, I added larger beads as I knit - 22 for each scallop. I worked out a bead placement on the Nova edging pattern. It took several tries to get it right.

Thank you so much! After studying the pics I kind of figured that that was how you did it. When I did a sample I too found that the beads slipped around. I really like how the beads pop at the base of the shawl and I'm looking forward to seeing how the beads allow the shawl to drape. Thank you again for sharing!
