The yarn in this photo was bought in a sale in Edinburgh when I was visiting SofM. I had in mind to knit this pattern with it but I started the pattern below but it came out far too big so I ripped it back and the yarn is now sitting in my stash.
I've started it again, this time it Patons 100% cotton, in a smaller size and it seems to be working out so far. I keep doing a few rows and it is a wee bit longer now.
This is a scarf pattern out of Debbie Bliss's book 'Donegal Tweed' called Inishowen. I'm using more Donegal Tweed bought reduced from Stash Fine Yarns of Chester. It is a Christmas present for my Sister in Law (she doesn't know about my blog) This is a very simple lace pattern but you wouldn't believe how many times I've had to take it back to correct it and theres me wanting to knit a lace shawl pattern!!
