It seems like I’m always late to the knitting party. But, better late than never was my thought for the current project on my needles…Ishbel. I had some Malabrigo sock yarn in my stash that I didn’t want to turn into a pair of socks but thought that I could try knitting a scarf or some sort of neck-warmer-thingy with. Ishbel, has the possibility of combining two different sizes to accommodate yardage – or in my case, lack thereof. The stockinette bit is done for the smaller size and the lace part for the larger shawl. Let’s hope that there is no nail-biting finish with this project with the possibility of running out of yarn!!
So, I cast on for this shawlette while we were on vacation in India in between sighting wildlife and lounging by the pool. Considering that I did so much lounging, I should have been done with this project, but with all of the moving and changes that have been going on around here, I lost momentum with this WIP and all of the others that I managed to stuff into my knitting bag and so all I’ve managed to complete is the stockinette part of the pattern.
However, things have definitely perked up since I began the lace chart and I am sure that this will be done and blocked soon. I’m late for the Ishbel party, but I’m determined to be done with this one before summer bids us farewell.
