Thanks so much Ingrid!!!!!!
So, if I double the sportsweight yarn, then it should be worsted weight if I understand correctly. Therefore, I could double the yarn for the Cosy shawl. Do you think that would work? I have decided to make the Cosy shawl http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall04/PATTcozy.html

Dustinac-- are you talking about the cosy shawl from Knitty.com or the lace shawl from Elann.com.
I tried a few rows of the shawl from Elann.com and I'm thinking that it's not specific enough for a beginner. I could follow the graph pattern, but could decipher what to do around all the edges. I ended up with a big mess
