What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure you use stitch markers between pattern repeats. I would purchase the course "Mastering Lace Shawls" as well. It was worth every penny.

Beautiful. Your stitches are so precise. The planets are very defined. I have just finished Skywalker and midway through Clarus. Trying to decide whether to add beads to the border, as I am taking that class too.

Thanks! I did add beads, but just a few as accents in border. I was very happy with the added bling. I used two small faceted and 1 large faceted bead in each pattern repeat all across border. I think I posted on Craftsy, but you could see on Ravelry too. I am vickiknitsall - search for me and its in my projects.

Your stitches really are precise. I agree with you about the markers and the lifesaver. What needles did you use? I have Hiya Hiya interchangeable but the tips weren't pointed enough and the needle kept on unscrewing from the cable. I had just finished the last row of Plasma successfully when I noticed the sts. were moving along much easier. Guess why. I have been trying to order the Chiaogoo Red Lace online from Amazon but they keep on telling me to put in a different delivery address because they can't send them. I live in Canada and was wondering if needles aren't allowed to send needles across the border. I have ordered from Amazon several times with no problems. I sent them an email asking why. You must be so proud of your work.
