What are you most proud of? I am a very new knitter and always dreamed of being able to knit lace, but never tried it. I am proud that I completed this shawl and that it turned out gorgeous!! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have plenty of yarn, use the lifelines and don't be afraid to rip back to them. You will put many hours into this project, so take your time, fix mistakes as you go and you will be rewarded with a piece you are proud of!
