What are you most proud of? It's finished! What advice would you give someone starting this project? The lace panel with beads was not easy but lots of fun. I learned a lot with this project and am glad I made it.

Q&A with CM Scrapper

Andrea7 asked:
Very nice Accola-shawl! I really like the blue yarn!
CM Scrapper answered:
Thank you.
GazeboQueen asked:
Nice, Kaye--what is the yarn? I have been thinking about taking that course. Do you recommend it?
CM Scrapper answered:
I definitely recommend the class. I've learned so much and Laura Nelkin is a wonderful teacher. She's very thorough. I knit this shawl w/ Heritage Silk Paints from Cascade. It's a wool/silk blend. It's a tad splitty to work with but has a lovely drape and very nice hand.
LisaYH asked:

CM Scrapper answered:
Thank you, Lisa. Enjoy the project!
