"Just be who you are, calm and clear and bright." - Richard Bach, Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah


Sierra in Villa de Leyva on a sunny Sunday morning, wearing the Ishbel I made her as a birthday/hostess gift.

“Ishkabibble” is my grandfather’s sometime nickname for my sister, after a comedian/musician from the 1940s. There are well over 10,000 Ishbels on Ravelry, so I thought I would call this one something different.


Limonada de coco. OH. MY. GOODNESS. We can die happy. (This was in Cartagena, not Villa de Leyva. I had to sneak Kate in here somehow.)

Now for more pictures of a pretty shawl (perfect marriage of yarn and pattern!) on a very pretty lady…



I used Jill Draper Makes Stuff Splendor Sock, which is THE yarn that is making me sad to be going 100% vegan (i.e., not buying any more wool. If you’d like to know why I’ve made this decision, listen to this podcast.)

This is one of my favorite photos. She’s got a secret and wouldn’t you like to know it. Hee!

    I have always spelled it Ishkabibal. Anyway, the shawl looks absolutely beautiful on Sierra!

Hi! I'm Camille. I only write stories that could never ever happen in real life, though I do believe in real-life magic. If we were in the same room I'd fix you a cup of tea, but for now we'll have to settle for a virtual connection. I'm really glad you're here.
