What are you most proud of? I learned soooo much in the completion of this project. Lay those lifelines, rip when you need to, enjoy the process. I also modified the pattern a bit (didn't add the edging). Oh, this project was also my introduction to knitting in public. I couldn't help myself! Waiting rooms, offices, I was there needles in hand. Turns out to be quite the conversation starter! Also proud I didn't rush it. I trusted the process and the skills and lessons I was learning along the way. From my very first provisional cast-on, to my first wool blocking, I didn't take short-cuts. My first shawl! What advice would you give someone starting this project? LIFE-LINES! Also, feel free to go digital. I've never printed out a pattern. Preview on a Mac with its strike-through, textbox, highlighter, and box functionality is all I've ever needed, no touch-screen needed.
