Ishbel

The Ishbel for Mum is finished. I know why there are so many of them on ravelry. It is such a great pattern. This is my first lace shawl and the pattern was so easy to follow and there were no mistakes. I used my own hand dyed silk/wool yarn which is amazingly soft. All the details are here. Modelled by Evie who would not take it off. I think the colour is the most accurate in the first photo.





Off to finish the packing and cleaning. Hopefully we are moving everything from the shed and outside today and the rest tomorrow and Friday. Crossing fingers my internet will be on sometime next week.

I love that pattern - it has been tempting me to get out my needles again - Although I suspect I would be very slow, I've only ever knitted two beanies!
