What was your inspiration?
One of my favorite fiber artists, Cheryl Andrews, made a mobile for a local art show that had 3 really large, intricate jellyfish. This is my version. Although slightly less awesome. :)
I also made this for Designers Challenge's July topic. --> (http://www.ravelry.com/discuss/designers-challenge/1727740/1-25#2)

Pattern forthcoming soon!
What are you most proud of?
I like how I used knitting needles for the support :) It was also slightly repetitive to make a ton of these, even if different sizes.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Pick out your color palette beforehand-- it makes things 10 times easier!
