Jean's Ishbel

Next up in the shawl parade is Ishbel. This one was meant for Jean. I found the prettiest color of yarn at Sttiches that had Jean's name all over it - it was Miss Babs sock yarn in Waterfall, a pretty blend of blue, periwinkle, and purple. I'm not a blue person but it was lovely.

I had purchased Ysolda Teague's Ishbel pattern previously, and it turned out to be a good match. I did the largest size since I had two skeins of yarn. I used about 1.25 skeins.

I wish I had a photo of Jean wearing it (HINT HINT Jean), but here is the shawl while blocking:

Hope Jean had a happy birthday!
