Pattern:  198 Yards of Heaven Shawl by Christy Verity
Yarn: Patons Classic Wool
Colorway: Jade Heather
Needles: US 8 circulars
Size: 42 inches across 21.5 inches deep
Skills: Casting on, decreasing (SSK & K2tog), increasing (YO), intermediate chart and written instruction following, knitting bind-off and blocking

Notes: Lovely knit. Gotta love a lace shawl in worsted weight yarn. Admittedly, I got a little discouraged for a moment at the end, but blocking….ohhhhhhh the blocking made everything sooooooo much better. I really enjoyed blocking this. It was very easy to pin up and very rewarding.

      Do it! Do it! Its super pretty and works up fast and cozy in worsted weight!

      The plan is to slowly work my way down to lace weight shawl knitting! Baby steps, baby steps…
