What advice would you give someone starting this project? Learn to read your stitches without looking at the pattern all the time. It has a sort of logical rhythm too it. Check out my blog at www.extremeknittingredhead,blogspot.co.uk for updates on my progress. I'm not happy with the difference in the cast-on edge (rounded) and the cast-off edge (pointy) so I'm thinking about either crochet or dangly bits to finish it off.
