LACE please
OK chaps, I've been looking at lace. Ooooh, fancy a crack at that!

But, all I can find on the web seems to be scarves (BORING) or bookmarks (?! whose got time to read ).

I need some ideas of something to knit lace thats not too big (shawl is a bit of an undertaking), but not just a sampler.

Any ideas?

Here are a couple smallish shawls. Using sock yarn they go pretty fast.

How about socks? Lots of lacy sock patterns out there.

Or maybe a pillow?

Did you particularly want to try lace-weight yarn? You can knit lace with any weight of yarn.

Some of the smaller shawls can be worn as a scarf, particularly the 'kerchief' type ones that are beginning to be really popular.
