Wow another FO........Ishbel #2

Do you guys know that song Whoa-oa-oa! I feel good, I knew that I would, now, I feel Good ta na na na na na!! That is exactly how I feel, two finished knits in one month wow I think it's coming back to me; my lost mojo. Here it is Ishbel #2 for my very good friend Rhonda back in the Caribbean, I really hope she likes it.

I really need to get caught up on my blog reading, but I have soooo much going on there is just not enough hour in the day to do all but I will make the time because I REALLY LOVE reading what you guys are doing.

The first 3 pictures show Ishbel blocked. While the 2nd set of 3 are preblocking. It really grew. I think my next Ishbel will be in bulky yarn, to take me through Autumn's chilly evenings.

Project info
Name Ishbel #2
Pattern Ishbel by Ysolda Teague Craft
Size Sm: St St Lrg: Lace
Needle US 8 - 5.0 mm for body  and US 10 - 6.0 mm for BO
Yarn Lana Grossa Klimatika wool/cotton blend

This is my Second Ishbel in a 50/50 Cotton wool Blend wasn't sure how it would have blocked or if would have kept it points. So far so good. Unblocked it measures 54X21 inches and Blocked 64X31 inches. I placed beads on the knit stitch between the 2 yo’s on chart D and E. 188 Toho Seed Beads 6/0 bought from Robins Beads. I think I am becoming a bead fanatic every time I plan to knit a shawl no I try to find a way to add beads to it. After I have finished all my current WiPs My next shawl will be Haruni I can't wait I will be doing two versions a  full lace and a st st version with the Chart B edging I have seen some beautiful ones on Ravelry, so hoping mine will do the pattern justice.

Well until next time Good night xx
