What are you most proud of? Training my fingers to keep tension, and not losing the string on the shuttle. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I like working with the unmercerized cotton to begin with, it's not slick as some other threads/yarns. Down side of using 100% unmerc is that it shrinks to the point that the bouquet is lost. For "training" my fingers I'm fine with this but am looking forward to trying on a pearly cotton scarf, the bouquet should be more distinctive.
