What are you most proud of? That the plan came together so well. I had never "killed" acrylic yarn before and was fascinated with the way the process made the shawl stay in the square shape as well as made it so much softer. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Find nerves of steel. Getting that shawl started took lots of patience. My heart was in my mouth the whole time I was "killing" the shawl... for fear that I would accidentally touch the yarn with the iron.
