Ishbel - a completed knitting project

I finished and blocked Ishbel a couple of weeks ago and got to wear it while I was in Colorado. It
was a fairly quick knit because it was so small. In retrospect I would have knit the larger version because I'm almost positive I had enough yarn. I knit it up with Dream in Color Smooshy in Grey Tabby, bought at Close Knit in Portland and it was mostly knit on my trip to Texas. I also knit pretty tightly and used a smaller needle than called for which added to the mini-size. I ordered blocking wires and pins from Knit Picks and the wires made blocking the little points SOOOO much easier. The heart shaped pin is from Designs by Romi and was my birthday present to myself. I really like her pins and I've got my next purchase planned.

That is so pretty and delicate!

It's beautiful! I may have to indulge in some of those blocking wires.
