Ishbel

Ooooh... how I loved this knit! It was one of the fastest shawls evah! Actually, I started it over the summer during swimming lessons, then put it aside until I picked it up and finished in a couple of days last week... but really, I feel like I hardly spent any time knitting it.

I made the smaller size because I really wanted a nice little scarf to wear with a certain brown jacket I have. I must say, I'm becoming quite addicted to these smaller triangular scarf-size shawls. I seem to finish them long before I get bored which is always a good thing.

The yarn... ooooh, I wish I could remember the yarn... to the best of my recollection, it is Yarntini sock yarn so we'll go with that, and I'll add it's a very interesting yarn. It is a wee bit nubby (for lack of a better word) with slight variations of color and little splashes of pinks that make for a more, well, rustic or casual knit than many yarns. And I love it!

Pretty, pretty, while I am still working on mine! But I have knit little to nothing for the last 3 months. Wish I could find your productivity!

Oh, I like that a lot Tammy!! Because of you, I'm nearly done with the body of the Foliage Shawl and will be starting the border today I hope :-)

I like this new one you've finished a lot, and what a nice change from just a scarf...it looks like it serves the same purpose but is much prettier!

Very pretty Tammy, I'm addicted to these smaller shawls (scarfs) too. They are so much fun and fast. And the best part is no more freezing on the ball fields... Yeah! I just finished my second Bandit today and if I can get the photographer to cooperate I will post picture later.

Very pretty, especially since it has little specks of pink in it, too!

Blessings,

Gosh, I love that blue! And using it as a scarf is such a brilliant idea - one that would make sense in my warm Alabama climate!

Oooo...it's gorgeous! I love the color.

It's always good to knit to your attentions span. (I often don't, which explains all the open-toed socks.)

I miss your frequent posts. Facebook is fun, too, but I wish you'd post more.

I know, I know....I never post either. :-(
