Wedding Ishbel for Sarah

The Ishbel by Ysolda Teague is my go-to for special occasion gift shawls. Love this pattern. Before I know it, I’m at the lace sections, so it feels quick to knit up. This one is in Cascade Yarns Heritage Silk, @880 yds. LOVE this wool, soft and pleasant, but light. Added beads to the YO’s of only the first row in each section. Then to the YO’s of all rows in the final section. Pretty.

I want to add monogram beads and will update this post after that. There’s a bead shop in town, so I’ll pop by this week.

Annalisa’s Shawl

This is the Ishbel Shawl, which has become a favorite for me. This is a Christmas present but I try to make those well in advance because I’m not one to try to knit in a deadline. That ruins the peaceful fun of knitting for me. This is knit in Madelinetosh Tosh Sock in the color Port. So it’s mostly a very dark purple, just about black with spots of lighter purples. I hope she will like it. I plan to make a small drawstring pouch for it to keep it in.
