You could try a lacy dishcloth - try Googling "Free Dishcloth pattern" and choose a lacy one.

Here's a cute lacy hat:

Lace is so much fun...I wish I had more time to spend on it..how about Cozy (http://www.knitty.com/issuefall04/PATTcozy.html)from knitty or Stolen Moments (http://www.indigirl.com/blog/?p=761)? or maybe the Forest Canopy (http://knittingasfastasican.com/forest-canopy-shoulder-shawl/) :happydance:

This is a pattern for a lacy poncho here (http://www.knittingpureandsimple.com/page2.html). #251, a little over half way down the page. It says the lace pattern is simple and it's very pretty.

they are all goeorgous. i am going to make the forest canopy shoulder shawl for my mum i think. i have a bet on with my mum to see who can have the cheapest christmas this year (cheap skates i know lol). but we always spend an absolute fortune and wonder why. so this one is one of the firsts to be made 'on the cheap lol' so its going to be made out of stash yarn mainly i think. goodness this sounds bad lol

thanks again, and we'll see how it all turns out
