Ishbel


She's done ! I wanted a simple , cosy shawl to put around my shoulders when I'm having my first cuppa on a cool morning . This fits the bill to a tee . The pattern was a dream to knit , and the Regia Hand-dye Effekt sock yarn was a nice surprise . It was nice to work with , didn't cost an arm and a leg and can I say , I just love this colourway .
Specs : Regia Hand-dye Effekt sock yarn colour azurit .
Knit on 4,00 mm Addi- Turbo lace circular needles .
finished size 68" w X 31 " deep .
With two other projects on the needles I'm all set for tonight's hockey game . I need some knitting to calm the nerves as our boys are down 2 games to 0 and it's not looking good .Tonight it's on home ice so hopefully that will bring them some luck . Go Habs Go !

There is actually a sock yarn out there I don't know yet??? :o)

I like the colors very much too.
It's hot here today, and was yesterday, 26C! The pups are having fun in the wading pool, splish, splash!
