It occurred to me, when I threw my shawl on, that I never posted info about my Ishbel here. I knit this a month ago, and it was, without a doubt, the quickest lace knit ever. And it's so pretty!!
I used Socks that Rock lightweight in the Blue Moonstone colorway, I had enough yardage to make the small shawl as written (there was maybe 60 yards left when all was said and done).
I have taken on a new challenge that my friend Ruth started in January, "no twine in "o"-nine. I started in March after I purchased yarn I pretty much already had for a project; but, more on that later.
My challenge is to use the yarn I already have in my possession (there's a lot of it). To that end, I am trying to come up with new things to use sock yarn for, because I knit socks at a rate equivalent to maple sap dripping in the winter. That would be very slowly, so that means knitting shawls. I am probably going to weave some of it up too, that goes by pretty quickly. But shawls are a pretty good option too, don't you think?
