On Friday night, I cast off on the Ishbel Shawl-lette by Ysolda.
I found this shawl to be a very quick knit and a very beautiful one at that. I used just short of one skein of Socks that Rock Medium-weight in Kaw-Kaw. I bought this skein at Madrona Fibers Arts and was disappointed that they only had one skein available. In the end though, it completely worked out!
I knit the small size for the stockinette and then switched to the large size of the pattern for the lace portion.
The lace directions were easy to follow and I have to admit that I might be more comfortable with written directions over charts.
More details on the pattern and yarn can be found on Ravelry. Additional photos can be found on Flickr.
