What are you most proud of? I took me under a week to make. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have fun with it. Make sure you leave a long piece of yarn after finishing each body part (eyes, claws, legs) as you'll need it to attach to shell. Also mark beginning of each row for each body part with a different colour thread, a safety pin or other kind of marker, as it is hard to know when a row ends and a new one starts.
