What materials did you use? Malabrigo Baby Merino wool lace weight. The shade is Violetas 68.

What are you most proud of? The fact that I am confidently working a lace shawl. I've had a couple of disasters which had really sapped my confidence prior to starting the course.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just knit a long with the course. I found it best to watch the section first and then knit along. That way I could add notes for the sections I knew I would need to rewatch once I was knitting that section.

This is really great. I'm having a terrible time deciding which class to take first and your project looks really great!

Lovely! I am glad you had the determination to keep going (lace weight yarn has great potential for disaster!) This should be a delight to wear when it is done.

I am taking te lace course as well and I'm working on the plasma stitch. If mine turns out half as lovely as yours I will still be proud! Great job and beautiful color!
