What are you most proud of? I did lace and it was not as hard as I thought. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Leave enough cast on tail on at least one side to seam the two halves together. I used the tail on both halves to seam mine and it is messier that I liked. Still I'm trying not to be too much of a perfectionist at this. If I make this again I may do a provisional cast on and knit out from the middle, so it will be in one piece and I won't have to alter the pattern much to make it work.
