Better Ishbel Photos

Managed to get some half decent photos of Ishbel in the daylight this afternoon. Unfortunately I had to take them myself, so it was an interesting photo-shoot, to say the least. Lots of photos of the garden behind me with the shawl barely in the pic, and lots of mostly my head and not much shawl. Lots of cropping during editing! The colour is much more accurate in these pics.

Gorgeous! And I really love that colour!

What needle size did you use? I didn't think it was clear on the instructions...I mean it says 4mm but is that for all yarn weights?

Thanks :) The colour is gorgeous. Not much to look at in the ball though. I was a bit disappointed with the yarn when I got it - felt a bit rough and colour wasn't quite what I thought, but knit up it's lovely and the colour is so pretty in natural light.

I used 4mm. I was a bit confused too. The Smooshy is 4ply. I just went with 4mm, but not sure if I was going to do it in a heavier yarn.
