I'm back from a wonderful week in the Lake District with lots of finished items to show you. Firstly, Ishbel from Ysolda's Whimsical Little Knits collection.
It has been cold in the office recently and I have been wearing my swallowtail shawl to death. I fancied a little bit of lace and fell in love with this simple scarf/shawl.
It is knit using The Yarn Yard "Beautiful - BFL" yarn we got as our end of September Solids club parcel. This photo below is about as true a likeness as I can get. The yarn has been overdyed so has a purply sheen to it. I wanted to make a shawl from this, it is too good to be hidden away in shoes.
An easily memorised lace pattern made this just fly along on my commute to work and made a nice change from socks!
So I had a lovely new scarf to wear in chilly Keswick last week!

Comments: A quick and simple lace pattern. Not as soft as my swallowtail (well that is silk and cashmere) but this will no doubt get a lot of wear.
