What are you most proud of? I was hopeless with charts - I got so confused and wouldn't even try them. The reason I chose "Mastering Lace Shawls' was to finally learn how to read them and not have to keep ripping back. Well, thanks to Laura, I'm now able to read and follow charted patterns - the shawl came out GREAT and I absolutely L.O.V.E. it!! Thank you again, Laura - I'm so much more confident with charts now and I have a gorgeous summer shawl to prove it! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Follow Laura's plan step-by-step. She'll get you thru the rough patches! Don't forget your LifeLines and read thru the Questions for tips & workarounds!
