What are you most proud of? Although my first lace project has mistakes, I love wearing it and get many compliments. I am not sure why I made the edges pointed when blocking, but it came out OK anyway. Note that the picture looks a little like there is a mistake on the left side, but there was something dark underneath in that area when I took the picture.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time and enjoy the journey. Laura's class is a great way to learn.

Thank you - it wasn't the easiest color to use for my first lace shawl, but my choices were few the day I went to the yarn shop. However, it is a color I will use.

I hear you I was so excited to do mine and had little to chose from. I have since ordered some and again I'm so excited to start, however I'm moving so thinking it is a week out. lol

I really like the pointed edges. I think it looks very classy. Congratulations!

Thank you. The points were a mistake. In a brain fog, I put points instead of scallops when I was blocking. :o) I guess it looks OK this way, too. :o) It was a fun project and Laura is a great teacher.

This is a pretty shawl and I learned a lot. In fact, I learned so much from the entire class! I am so happy to have taken this class. Laura is an excellent teacher. I can remember thinking that it was hard to read charts, but now I don't want to knit any other way. I can't thank Laura enough for "walking" me through learning lace and charts, step-by-step. I have moved on to a variety of knitting, but I may do this shawl again. Thanks again for this class!
