Ishbel

Pattern: Ishbel by Ysolda
Yarn: Dream in Color Smooshy in Butter Peeps (about half a skein)
Needles: US 4

I saw this version a while back, and had a sudden, inexplicable need for a yellow lace scarf, nevermind that I've never thought that lace was really "my thing." This isn't lace lace, though. It's more stockinette with a lace border, which I'm ok with. And really, who doesn't need a happy yellow scarf when one is trying her hardest to make spring hurry the hell up already! I would love to have a version of this in something incredibly decadent - really soft and lovely. Alas, while I was lucky enough to have this lovely skein sitting in my stash (big bonus points for a cash-strapped grad student) it is a superwash wool. Great for socks. Not the best choice for neckwear. In any case, I love this scarf, and I can see that last half a skein quickly being incorporated into some color work socks for the winter.
