View Full Version : angora suggestion?

05-18-2008, 10:20 AM
I'd like to knit up some angora baby boooties. I like the pattern in Last Minute Knitted Gifts. It uses
Bouton d'Or 100% angora OR Bouton d'Or Imperial Infeutrable (100% angora), but I am having trouble finding this.
Any suggestions on where to find it?
Any suggestions for something else I can use instead?

The guage is: 24 sts and 32 rows= 4 inches in stockinette stitch.
Need approx 30 yards to give the correct gauge.
Pattern takes size US 5 DPN.

Thank you!

I Googled it, and the best place looks like this one:


Jimmy Beans (one of my favorite places on the net) had it, but no longer.

Good luck!

BTW, if it's not too nosey a question, when is your baby due?

Thanks for the site. I see the price list, but am not sure exactly how to order. I'll play around with it a bit more.
I'm due July 7th, a little girl, my second : )

How exciting, only about six more weeks! Is the other one excited about being an older sib?

Yes, she's thrilled to be a big sister!

In case anyone reading this is curious about what I ended up doing: I fiddled around on the web a bit and found Belangor 100% angora. It is the same gauge and yardage as the other and only $12 a skein. I ordered it from Purl-- www.purlsoho.com.
So as soon as it arrives, I should be in baby bootie business!
