Be prepared for Ishbel

The pattern isn’t quite done, but it will be up very soon. In the meantime maybe you need to get some yarn? This pattern features two absolutely beautiful yarns by two of my favourite indie dyers, and if neither of these takes your fancy both of them have lots of other yarns that would be suitable. You need anything from lace to fingering (4ply) weight and the pattern is in two sizes requiring around 330 yds / 300m [610 yds / 555m].

This is the larger laceweight version in Fyberspates Scrumptious Lace in Kisses.

I need to take photos in daylight but this is the smaller version in Old Maiden Aunt alpaca / merino 4ply in Moody.(psst. might want to get that now – there’s a sale on!)

Thank you to Jenand Lilith for making such fantastic yarns for me to work with.
