What are you most proud of? Learning how to work with both strung and placed beads. It was initially very challenging. But after a few questions that were aptly answered by the instructor, things became smoother. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Check what you are doing often. I found a few mistakes while blocking that I didn't catch while knitting. Also, take your time and watch and listen to Laura. She explains things beautifully. Also, don't knit when you are tired! I ripped out several times because I didn't stop as soon as I should have.
