What are you most proud of? This shawl caused a bit of grief. I used interlocking needles that came apart several time toward the end. I think the weight of the project just unlocked the wires. This was incredibly frustrating as I was always in a pattern making picking up stritches more difficult. Then I also had that mishap with my crocket hook, pushing the beads through.... so this one if for me! It just looks so gorgeous on and can be worn in any season. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just do it and play around with different stitch patterns.. I used a pattern book for the lace stitches I put into the project. So use your imagination and dont over complicate.
