Blocking the 198 yds. of Heaven Shawl...


198 yds. of Heaven by Christy Verity
Knitpicks Interchangeable circular needle size 8
Cascade 220 Handpaints....was odd knitting with this for a shawl. I'm so used to fingering or lace weight. Was not to thrilled with it when knitting it but it blocked out beautifully.

Blocking your knits class went really well today. It was a lot of fun! Was so glad I did this at Wolfe Farms so I could have a lot of show and tells to demonstrate different techniques. PDF instructional handout it is on the Wolfe Farms site. We also blocked Neckio30's cabled scarf! Knit Twit meet that followed was a lot of fun with tons of laughs!
