What are you most proud of? I'm most proud of finishing the project and being able to show it off without anyone seeing or commenting on the 2 mistakes in the knitting. I'm also proud of the lace knitting, Dee made it so much easier to knit than I had ever imagined. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Unless people are experienced lace knitters, my suggestion would be to knit this project with a solid colour, soft sock yarn. Experienced lace knitters can use lace yarn. Either way, the shawl will end up beautiful.
