a new year

I did not get a chance to post about Ishbel before the new year snuck up on me! I really did finish it in time, even before Christmas. Which is good, considering it was a Christmas present. And well received, I'd say. She changed her shirt to match the color so she could wear it that day. Woot. :) Always nice to see your knits appreciated.

Pattern: Ishbel (ravelry link)
Yarn: Bristol Yarn Gallery Buckingham, about one and half skeins (Just to add in that this yarn is very soft and I am so glad I was able to snag something so cozy at my extremely LYS... that is more of a sewing store)
Needles: Size 6
Thoughts: Loved the pattern, was fairly easy to memorize. However I'm still pretty sure I got off a stitch or two near the end. But you can't really tell. I will definitely give this pattern another go sometime. Probably in the near future, since I have joined the 10 shawls in 2010 group on ravelry! (When I told K this, he whined and said "No more SHAWWWWWS. Join the 10 scarfs/hats and mittens for boyfriend group!")

2009... I will give it a thumbs up. It was pretty good to me.

This year should be filled with wonderful things as well. Lots of knitting plans....


  1. It's so pretty!! Great job on the shawl. Happy New year!

  2. This is really lovely. I hope you have a really great year this year.
