|Ishbel for Coral|
On the knitting front, I finished the Ishbel for Patrick's sister Coral a few weeks ago and she was very pleased with it. Here it is blocking. I really enjoyed knitting this and I'm sure I will knit it again and again.
I decided to bead the last section to add a bit of interest. I was particularly pleased with how it turned out as it was my first attempt at knitting with beads. I knitted a little sample of the edge chart to practice with and also to decide which of the 4 different beads I had bought (because I couldn't make up my mind!) to use. In the end I went for some dark green iridescent ones that I thought looked really effective against the pine green yarn. The yarn I used was Cygnet Wool Rich 4ply in colour Pinemix. Below is the beaded edge detail, the yellow things are pins not beads!
