It's my third blogiversary! Let's celebrate with a lacy triangle.

Ishbel: Blocking (IMG_2510 edited)

Pattern: Ishbel by Ysolda Teague
Yarn: Malabrigo Lace in Paris Night (52), less than 1 skein
Needles US 4 (3.5 mm)

I really enjoyed knitting this (and wearing it too)! While I originally was making this for a Malabrigo March knitalong, I thought the greys fit in well with the North and stone grouping for Project Spectrum.

During the same time I was working on Ishbel, I read Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey. The heroine, Catherine, is fascinated with Gothic novels, so I took inspiration from this and found some Gothic-influenced architecture for a photo shoot.

Absolutely gorgeous, Jennifer. This pattern has been on my to-do list for awhile. Today it moved up a notch! Did you make any modifications from the pattern? Love the color, too...and the location for your photo shoot...where is it?
