What are you most proud of? I'm proudest that I managed to loosen up my knitting so that when I blocked this, it could open up and look like the lace shawl it is! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Lifelines and markers! And then - go for it! The body of the shawl falls into a nice rhythm so that you can look at the chart, the row you're on, and see it as several good-sized chunks rather than lots of individual stitches.
