I've jumped on the Ishbel bandwagon. I've admired Ysolda's patterns and style for months, and after completing Liesl last month, and loving it, I decided to try another of her designs. Ishbel has been in my queue practically since it was published, back in January. Last night, I debated which stash yarn to use, and it came to me: I could use a yarn that would also fit into the second phase of Project Spectrum. I cast on last night and I'm almost through the first ball of yarn. This yarn is something special.
I purchased it from Woolgirl sometime last year. It's Unique Sheep Gradient sock yarn in Lemon-Lime Spritz. There are four skeins, each one hundred yards, and the color ranges from orange to green. I love the way it's knitting up so far, and after a few hours of work last night, I'm only 8 rows from finishing the stockinette portion. However, since the pattern only calls for 330 yards, and I have 400, I may increase the stockinette portion by a few rows. Hopefully, the lace goes as smoothly for me. I'm visiting my grandparents this weekend, so I should be able to devote some time to this. It provided me with just the satisfaction I needed last night.
