Ishbel…a VERY late birthday present

My mums birthday is in January and about 3 weeks before hand I had a great idea of knitting something for her. I purchased the yarn, chose a pattern and even dyed it up myself, BUT I didn’t even get it cast on! Yes I am very slack daughter!

 

Well my SIL got onto me about it (in the nicest way) and so I finally cast on and completed this in about 10 days. I am quite happy with it. It is my first attempt at a shawl and I really like the smaller size for use as a scarf.
