Another week, another shawl!
I’ve been meaning to make Ishbel for quite some time now, but it’s one of those pattern I was never able to get around to. It wasn’t until Sock Summit, where I got to see many beautiful examples in person, that I was finally inspired to make one of my own.
The yarn was purchased specifically for this pattern while I was at Sock Summit. It is Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks that Rock Mediumweight in 24 Karat. I used size 3 needles.
Between my love of cardigans and fingering weight shawls I’m content to knit little else. My sweaters always get a great deal of use, but the shawls spend most of the time folded up in my cedar chest. It seems I like making them far more than I like wearing them. When I do wear them it’s usually fashioned similar to how I’m wearing Ishbel in the first picture, which is why I made the small version. It measures 38.5″ x 15″, perfect for wearing around my neck.
