Besides sewing I also enjoy a spot of knitting. I caught the lace knitting bug about a year ago, and have since knitted several shawls including Laminaria by Elizabeth Freeman, Shetland Triangle and Swallowtail Shawl both by Evelyn Clark.
Ishbel by Ysolda Teague was a joy to knit, the charts were easy to read, and the knitting was rather easy. Lace knitting looks far more complicated than what it actually is. The same can be said for reading the lace knitting charts. Although a level of concentration is required the process is simple if taken one step at a time.
I have used Malabrigo Sock yarn for this project in the colorway Alcaucil. It is a soft merino yarn which has been kettle dyed to give it a deep rich color with subtle shadings.
Ishbel, the pattern, can be found here. My finished knitting projects can be seen on Ravelry.
