I've got a vintage pattern (1953) for lace gloves in sock yarn.  They're pretty, and they'd look fabulous with a mohair or angora cuff added on!  Would that be the right weight of yarn for yours?

Sounds LOVELY! I think it would work. Where is the pattern from?

The branching out pattern is pretty fabulous. I'm only a so-so knitter, but I think I might be up for a challenge. Drat, I missed the knit-along.

Where are my Halifax knitters when I need them  Cry  Moving away from your crafting buddies really stinks.

HA! I do miss my parents' cat Sad

Melidomi - do you have any ideas for a pattern for mittens? or a lacey scarf? I was just on knitty, but the '101' mitten pattern there seems a bit chunky for my taste.
7  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / baby quilt - 1930s feedsack 9-patch on: September 27, 2005 05:27:17 AM
I have just finished my *first* quilt. I made it for friends expecting their first baby... of course he was born early so I wasn't finished in time!

I'd love any feedback from veteran quilters or anyone with a creative eye!

The blocks are 4 1/2 inches finished width
Quilted by hand
Mitered corners binding
Back side is flannel to be nice and cozy for the baby

I can only suggest that I need it.  God that sounds just dreamy!  Whats the yardage?

I have no idea - it was just a part skein that I found in a market. Due to my lack of knowledge of Tibetan I was unable to find out Wink It's not a ton, but definitely enough for a scarf or loose shawl...

I recently returned from a trip in Asia and have some lovely off-white hand-spun cashmere just waiting to become something beautiful. I was thinking 'lady mitts', but does anyone have any other ideas/patterns.
