What are you most proud of? This was my first pattern that included a lace edging. I learned the technique from Laura Nelkin's fabulous Mastering Lace Shawls class right here on Craftsy!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This pattern is a good introduction to lace knitting and/or beaded knitting. The beads are optional, so if both techniques are new to you, you may choose to omit the beads and concentrate on the lace.
