What materials did you use? Jamieson's Shetland Spindrift wool

What are you most proud of? Re-jigging Mary Jane's pattern to deal with a slightly finer wool than the pattern called for.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Watch the lessons as you knit - but watch each lesson BEFORE you start that part of the project.

I love your color choices! I'm currently still playing around with color and in "swatch" mode. I haven't quite found the right combination yet but am getting close and I can't wait to start the project!

Swatching is definitely worth your while (although I was itching to get started I made myself swatch per Mary Jane's recommendations) - I changed things around after seeing the colors together :-)

Love the color way! Good job!

That's such a great color combination--I never would have thought of orange as an accent.

Lovely colours! Since orange is the complementary colour to blue, it really makes the pattern sing!
