ishbel scarf
this image is the true color

after finishing the as-yet-to-be-blogged dreaded project, I needed a little pick me up in my knitting life. chatting it up with joelene led me to totally copy her and cast on for ishbel. I immediately thought of some yarntini I've had in the stash for a couple of years now but could never find the right pattern for. I'm a little too protective with my yarntini stash I guess, but with a color like this wouldn't you be too?

this little scarf just flew off the needles and now it has me jonesing for some more shawl/scarves. I think I finally found the perfect scarf pattern for me: it isn't a huge shawl so the end is always in sight, it isn't one long rectangle that just goes on and on, and it's so light that it's almost season-less. oh, and the best part, no bulk under your coat. just throw it nonchalantly over your shoulders and you're ready to go.


oh, that colour is great on you.

Gorgeous. And you've gotten your knitting mojo back with a bang!

Oh, it looks wonderful! I've got some sock yarn from the Knittery in a very similar colour (also named Merlot, in fact!) and now I'm very tempted to make its fate an Ishbel.... Beautiful work :)


beautiful! i'm dying to cast on for a triangular scarf for myself too. this might be the one, so pretty.

It's beautiful!

This color is killing me, such a great use of your Yarntini:)

I have yet to make a triangular scarf, but I'm always admiring them, and this one is no exception! You finished that project quickly.

totally gorgeous!

Gorgeous. Great color on you. How many skeins did that take?

Beautiful, that color looks great on you!

This is so pretty on you! I may just have to copy you!

Fantastic colour :) And I have plans for more sort of scarves that I think might fit your criteria for perfect.

It's so preeeeetty. Now let's see the rest of those FOs =)

Oh, that's so pretty! I love the deep raspberry color!

Its Lovely Yahaira! Love the deep rich purple hues.

yahaira, that is the prettiest pink i've ever seen. beautiful!

That was quick!! A perfect little pick me up for dreary February :)

that is gorgeous!

Oh my gosh that's how I describe Ishbel too! I really enjoyed making mine and I've worn it all over the place. Quick and lovely!

I love that color!! I can't wait to knit it!

Gorgeous. I love that yarn. There are so many great yarns out there that I haven't seen before (makes me feel like I've been living under a rock).

Amazing colour! I'm working on an Ishbel right now too!

This is such a gorgeous color on you!!!! Beautiful knitting as always!!!!

definitely a keeper.
stunning combination of yarn and project.
and wow that was fast - it's truly a mini-shawl.. you're super speedy.

This is SO beautiful. You did a fantastic job.

Beautiful! That color is absolutely to die for!

This is a lovely scarf! I don't think I would have the patience to complete it, but you did a beautiful job!


Everyone seems to be casting on or finishing this one, I cast on just last night :)

That's so beautiful and the colorway is just precious!
