Ishbel ...

Loved this project ... although the photos, not so much. Looks a bit like I'm wearing a bib or an apron in the second photo ... I was going to do a 'slung-across-the-chest-to-the-other-shoulder kinda thing', but my photographer was "done", if you catch my drift :)

Handmaiden Casbah Sock yarn in "Wine" -- amazing yarn! I promptly put in an order for another skein, once I'd finished with this one. I actually had a good 2" ball of yarn leftover, which I'm sure could be used up in Saartje's booties, or something equally tiny and darling.

There is nothing bad to be said about either the yarn or the pattern -- only superlatives.

Love, love, LOVE this colour on you, dahling. Really sensational. I can't wait to knit up my Casbah!

Oh wow, your Ishbel looks beautiful in the Wine! You look lovely wearing it too, I like the bib-look:)

I just finished knitting with my Casbah too and I'm smitten. What a fantastic yarn!
