Ishbel Insanity


Ishbel by Ysolda Teague
Yarntini Fingering :: "The Crotch on Those Pants is Insane" inspired by Michael Kors on Project Runway.

What a quick, instant gratification-y project. It's a little teeny but it was fun, and possibly a warm-up for a larger one in sport-weight? An addictive little shawl-ette that is spreading like wild-fire over at Ravelry. The yarn was great to knit, the name got me. I got into Yarntini's new semi-solid club, bring it on:)

I hope everyone had a nice Easter! This fiber by Funky Carolina called "Duck Feet" just makes me think spring:

Now if we can just get some spring weather to match. Have a good week!

(And because I think my cat is the cutest guy ever and I am having fun experimenting with a new lens...a token pet shot::)

ETA: would you even guess this spry guy is 15 years old? The best cat ever.

Love your Ishbel! I haven't quite figured out HOW to wear mine yet -- it's a little big for a scarf and small for a shawl.

What a cute fluffy kitty.

What a beautiful shawlette! I'd like to try this pattern. Having never really knit lace, it seems as though this might be a good first project? What do you think?

Love your Ishbel. I know what you mean about it being addictive...I made one in just a little over 48 hours. Now want to make the larger one too. So easy, and fun.
