Another pattern to use up yarn...cotton yarn

I am always on the lookout for patterns that will use up bits of yarn but still make something useful. A fast project is even better.

Here is a unique dishcloth pattern that you can knit up in no time. Use up your bits of cotton yarn and have some extra cloths for hostess gifts!

Do you have some favorite patterns to use up odd bits of yarn?

Happy knitting, Debby

Victorian treasures from England

I have posted some Victorian treasures for sale on ETSY.

The Shilling guide is a precious primary source for many lost arts such as lace making. 

A few examples of the instructions included are for carrickmacross lace, honiton lace, irish crochet lace, limerick lace, point lace, tatting, teneriffe lace and torchon lace. There are projects in smocking, knitting and crochet as well. 

There are some single issues of Weldon's Practical guides and Fancy Needlework Illustrated too.

Enjoy, Debby
