Ishbel Shawl

Monday, March 12, 2012

I recently did a personal swap with the AWESOME sheepBlue from QuirkieCraft. I so admire her talent and whimsy so I was thrilled to get to craft with her. She happened to request a knitted shawlette just at a time that I was craving some shawl knitting!
I made her the famous Ishbel shawl as seen all over Ravelry. The shawl and I had a troubled relationship for the month we were together. There was some frogging, some angry throwing into the WIP basket and more than a few cuss words. We eventually found a mutual respect for one another and ended on a happy note. I'll remember her fondly :).

I used Araucania Ranco solid yarn. This was the first time I've used it but it won't be last! It's lovely to work with and the hand dyed color is beautiful.



























I did the bind-off a bit too snuggly so I didn't have the wiggle room to block out the points. I'll make that correction if I ever knit another one, which I will.

I received some wonderfully fun and beautifully made goodies from sheepBlue in exchange for this shawl. It was a really great swap all around.
