What are you most proud of? 375 tiny glass beads were a challenge for my patience. It took an audio book to carry me through.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? The shawl is easy to knit. It should be blocked and I used the wet blocking method, (found on You Tube) bulletin board pins, , a large towel on the guest room bed. One of those sprayers for dampening your ironing and a hairdryer works fine too!

Thanks - I missed some rows and the shawl became smaller than expected. I still have yarn and beads and will eventually add another tier to make it longer but it looks ok on the photo ;-)
