Project Description

What are you most proud of? I have to admit that I just about gave up and quit, but with Laura's encouragment I kept trying and practicing and, well as you can see I finished the project and I am so glad that I did. I could not have done it without Laura's help. If I can do this project, anyone can! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Practice the center panel several times before starting. For me it went from work to fun! So much fun that I've actually started another Accola! I love this shawl, so beautiful. So, practice alot before starting, I know we all can't wait to start the actual project, but practicing the center panel several times before starting would be the best advice I can give. I had to do it probably 6 times before I got the courage to begin, but it was well worth it. I did not want to make a mistake in the center panel. You can do this!

The workmanship and yarn are absolutely beautiful. You did an amazing job. I am about to begin this pattern and this picture is an inspiration. What yarn did you use?
Victoria H answered:
Lorna's Lace Shepherds Sock, the color is Midway, it's actually the exact yarn that Laura used for the small Accola.
