What are you most proud of? The fact that I can actually knit a beautiful lace shawl, read a chart and fix mistakes......count, count, count! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Go for it......just watch the videos (and rewatch if necessary), ask questions, and forge ahead. Ms. Nelkin is an excellent teacher --- I am hoping she will teach more lace shawl classes - maybe a round? These Craftsy classes are outstanding and a perfect way to learn any knitting technique.
