Shetland lace - Cat's Paw lapghan
Here's a lapghan I made for my mother in law. The pattern is Cat's Paw which is a very old Shetland lace pattern. It's very snuggly, has no pull, and stretches readily. Didn't need to be blocked at all. Can ya see the cat's paws in the pattern?

I tried to attach a close up picture as well; however, even though it was the right size I can only seem to attach one.

It looks just like a little kitty walked all over your lapghan!

What beautiful work you do! You're definitely inspiring me to try lace again!
