What are you most proud of? I changed part of the last round from 26 picots and twisting the chain (looked messy to me) to the node stitch. This gave me a cleaner edge, and the effect was very similar to twisting the chain multiple times. I was able to figure out a node stitch "number" (I used 4/4), and adjust the number of required stitches to achieve the effect I wanted, and let the doily lay very nicely. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't be afraid to try commercial patterns after taking the class. I learned a lot in the process of making this first doily and got to hone the skills I learned in the class.
