Knitting: Ishbel

A shawl I finally made one. The lace was so much fun!!! I have lace fever now and I can't wait to knit some more. I have enough yarn left over for the matching hat that has been made to go with the shawl. Too much do you think :)?

The yarn was sock yarn from Moseley Park, dyed by the lovely owner Jane who has a prodigious talent even though she told me that she hasn't been dyeing all that long. She sells amazing yarn and also beautiful fibre from her own flock of sheepies at great prices.

The pattern is the oft knitted Ishbel by Ysolda Teague the young overachieving super cute knitgodess that she is.

Looking good mumma bear. As is the Ishbel! Can see why you have caught the lace bug :-)

Just stunning, the colour looks amazing on you. I have a feeling a lace shawl won't be too far away for me to try either.

I have shawl envy. Beautiful! And the matching hat would just be even more amazingness.

That is a gorgeous shawl! (and it's not the only thing in the picture that looks gorgeous - you look so beautiful and happy in the sunshine!)
