Ishbel

Dear Mom,
Before this turns into Patsy's blog, I am gonna hurry up and show you some knitting. I finished Ishbel last night during Project Runway, blocked her during Austin and Santino, and she is ready for her debut.


I used about 1 1/2 balls of Panda Silk, a beautiful blend of bamboo, merino wool and silk. This was a well written, easy to follow pattern and I feel like it was finished pretty quickly. I can't remember when I started, but I think it was all done within a week. I will definitely make more of these.

Love,
Kim

p.s. I know you don't watch Project Runway, but I really wanted Gretchen to go home.

Gorgeous! Ishbel is such a pretty pattern. Bet you can't wait for the cooler weather so you can wear it!

Ooooh, Booooo Gretchen! Isn't she foul? Who do you like best? Austin and Santino are a scream, too. See, we even like the same TV shows. Michele

I don't watch it, but I'll drop your comment to my daughter-in-law and see if I impress her. :)

Ishbel is divine-ish!!!!

Gorgeous! I'm so tempted...especially knowing it doesn't take forever to knit.

Wow! almost makes me want to exchange the needles I work with to knitting needles! Beautiful design and colour!
