{Yarn Along} 198 Yards of Heaven

Remember that shapeless lump of red wool that I've been working on for the past few weeks? Look what it grew up into! Sometimes I'm really amazed at what you can accomplish with four bucks worth of wool and a free download.
 
 
Yarn: Knitpicks Wool of the Andes (Firecracker, 2 skeins)
Needles: vintage nylon circular 
 
 
 
I love the way the lace pattern from the body of the shawl flows seamlessly into the edging. I think it's the first time I've ever used stockinette lace for the shawl and garter stitch lace for the edging.
 

Can you make out the knitting needle in this picture? All of the stitches from both scalloped edges were scrunched onto that needle. It works, but it makes it tough to get pictures of the shawl in progress.

That is amazing. What a talent. Part of me wishes I could knit and other..well, I know I wouldn't get as much quilting done.

Very lovely! I like it in the solid color.

I knit one a couple of years back for my aunt in a variegated blue and it also looked pretty good. It's one of those very useful patterns.

Wow! Really pretty. I agree the flow of the pattern to the edges is beautiful.
