I've been working on my Ishbel shawl for a couple of weeks, on and off. The yarn I'm using is beautiful, much finer than I'm used to! It's Babylonglegs semi-precious (silk/merino blend) in Jeanie-Jean.
It took a few evenings to do the stocking stitch centre, then I stopped for a while as I was scared of the pattern. I tend to stick to easy/plain knitting. But I've found this more straightforward than I expected.
I've been slowed up again by a rookie error - I didn't ball up the yarn before I started to knit. And the skein got horribly tangled. I spent 3 hours on Monday night trying to untangle, and got this far:
I couldn't face another night of it, so I snipped it! Oh well, lesson learnt.....
