Ishbel Finally!

A few weeks ago having been at a friends memorial service in the morning, I came over with the urge to block my Ishbel shawlette.  It having been waiting for this for over six months...

So I can now share the finished Ishbel, pattern by Ysolda Teague, knit in Fyberspates Scrumptious 4ply Sport Superwash

It became obvious when I blocked that I had gotten out of sync when I did the border but I'm not going to worry about that now.


I asked Rosie to model it for me and she showed me several ways of wearing it, many that hadn't actually occurred to me!
