What are you most proud of? That I changed the pattern proportions, checked gauge carefully so it really came out to exactly the right measurements, researched the best way to block this particular yarn (40% extrafine Merino wool, 30% microfiber, 20% milk protein and 10% silk) -- and of course that the (nearly) finished project is one I can be proud of having created! What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you consider yourself a beginner, this is a beautiful way to move forward in knitting experience without being discouraged. Lots of good help available from class teacher as well as students, too.
