Time for some evolution!
B_Twin sent me some merino/silk for my birthday a while ago.
I spun it up into two-ply yarn.
Knitting . . .
Blocking . . .
The pattern is 198 Yards of Heaven (Ravelry link) by Christy Verity. This was my first shawl-like thing, and once I realized what was going on, it really wasn’t hard. It went quickly (thicker yarn with bigger needles), so I feel very accomplished.
I only made one change to the pattern. Instead of doing the garter stitch border, I continued the pattern. It was so pretty, I didn’t want to switch.
