FO: Ishbel

Look what we found in the city today! An honest-to-goodness phone booth with working door at the corner of West End Avenue and 101st Street. Vespa on the street is an added bonus.

Pattern: Ishbel by Ysolda Teague [Ravelry link]
Yarn: Malabrigo Lace in Blue Surf (0.9 skeins)
Size: Large
Needle: US5/3.75mm

Can you believe 2025 knitters on Ravelry have worked this pattern? Amazing. It is a lovely little shawl. I like the increases on both sides, which make it wider and shallower than most triangle shawls (and may use that trick in a future design). And the yarn is scrumptious, and I like the semi-solidity of this colorway. I can't wait for some cooler weather to really put this knit into rotation.


  1. Your Ishbel is beautiful - love the color!

    Ah, the demise of the pay phone ... not good for those of us who don't have cell phones.

  2. Very nice Ishbel. I don't remember that phone from my NYC days!?

  3. So cute! Must be a great pattern, I have seen a ton of people knitting it. I think I need to add it to my to-do list too!

  4. Absolutely gorgeous.

    And good to know Superman still has a place to change. (He'll still have to bring his own curtains.)
