Ishbel (rav link) is my first lace project and I must admit I was really afraid! I really dislike working from charts, but thankfully this pattern had the lace bits written out. This was made from one hank of Noro Silk Garden Sock yarn (rav link). Noro is not my favorite pick: it always contains a color you are not counting on, no matter how much you poke into the skein. In my case it was a ton of blue. If I had it to do over, I would manipulate the colors so that the stockinette section contained all the blue and the lace would be predominantly green.
