Things that I learned by choosing a freaking lace wedding shawl as my second major project:

1. Lace work is not bad on a huge circular needle.

2. Don’t show anyone your lace until you have blocked it. They will think you didn’t ball-roll a skein correctly or you are knitting a handbag. It looks like crap until blocked.

3. Repeats can be nasty if you don’t understand just how many the author really wants you to do.
