Once again I need to apologise for the bad pics but this is the best I can get from my mobile camera.

Here is my Ishbel she is so beautiful and beaded you would have to see it for yourself as these pics do her no justice. These pics where taken in haste to take advantage of the sun which doesn't stay in the sky for any long period, so hence the uncut yarn lol.

Project info
Pattern Ishbel by Ysolda Teague
Needles US 6 / 4.0 mm US 8 / 5.0 mm
Yarn Wild Fire Fibres BFL Sock
How much? 0.8 skeins = 320.0 yards
My first time reading a chart which I found so much easier than the written instructions. I knitted the small st st and the large lace section using about 75g or 320 yards of yarn. 8/0 size Beads placed on the knit stitch between the yo on chart D and E. Cast off with a 5mm needles. :)

I do hope you enjoy looking at her as much as I have enjoyed knitting her. :)


  1. She is gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous. This pattern is on my "to knit" list.

  2. wow your Ishbel is beautiful! I also would like to make one of these. I think the pics turned out great♥ I love the beads♥ I can't believe its only 320 yards. I love the yarn♥

  3. I love the beads. Having seen yours, I think I'm going to try a beaded one too!
