FO: Isobel Scarf
I just finished this scarf for my ISE4 pal. It is the Isobel Scarf done in Malabrigo (in Bobby Blue). I really love how it came out. The picture represents the color really well! I was unsure about the fringe but now I am glad I added it. And blocking (my first time) was like magic, as it was curling a bit.

Absolutely fantastic job showing that Malabrigo can be used with a pattern! I know some of us are scared to use it in something intraciate because we like to show off the yarn, but you did a great job using the yarn with the pattern. How many hanks of Malabrigo did you use?

Thanks! It was just over 1 hank. I knit it to about 50" and it got longer when I blocked it. I really was pleased how well it worked with the lace pattern. I used size 8 needles.

Ooohh--Isobel is oooh-some! I mean AWESOME!! You know what I mean--don'tcha??

By the way Sara__Jayne--I thought of you when I looked at the pattern link, and saw the turquoise and chocolate colors!! Isn't that what you were asking Angelia about? They're PURDY together!
