Pattern: Ishbel shawlette, by Ysolda Teague
Yarn: Posh Yarn Diana 2ply, 70% merino 30% silk, in the colourway Escape. The colours can best be seen in this photo of the scarf blocking:
Notes: I made this shawlette as a birthday present for a friend – one of my rare knitting projects for someone other than myself! She is one of the few people I know who really appreciate a hand-made gift, and is such a good friend that I am happy to knit for her.
This was incredibly quick to knit, taking just one weekend to knit. Both the stocking stitch and the lace sections were fun and easy, without being boring. I loved it, and luckily my friend does too!
gorgeous! what a wonderful gift!!!
i discovered posh yarns last week, am a bit slow and quite new to the knitting thing as you know. do you like the yarn? am wondering if i should try and get some….
OH it looks marvelous! What gorgeous yand and a lovely, lovely gift.
And reassureing to hear that it was easy for you to knit. I will have to take another look at the Ishbel pattern I purchased— it looked rather daunting at first glance through. Although, easy for Princess Pea and easy for me are two different things entirely!
So pretty! I have been thinking about making another one already…
a lovely gift – I’m sure the recipient will treasure such an exquisite piece of your work
It’s lovely ~ what a wonderful gift from you!

Oh your Ishbell is beautiful, I would have a hard time giving it away. I’m on the lace part of mine and like you, I’m really enjoying it.
