My Lovely Ishbel

The other night I finished my Ishbel shawl.  I only cast it on last week, so it was a very quick knit!!  I used Moseley Park's 50/50 wool/silk blend.  I was really surprised by the yardage on this shawl, as I only used (exactly) half a skein!  Which is quite a bit less than the pattern called for!!  However, now I am considering making a matching Ishbel Beret as I definitely have enough to do one and I think it could be quite cute!

I wore this yesterday (as you can see by the picture), and the only downside to it is that its quite 'slippery' as it moves a lot.  I might have to invest in a shawl pin to stop it doing this.
