Q. What are your fav Eyelets and laces?

My new love is LB moonlight mohair with a US 10.5-15 needle. It's just super beautiful with eyelet patterns, so I've been getting into learning my sl, yo, and psso's in the laces and eyelets department. There are so many choices and styles, so I'd like to hear about your favorite eyelet and/or lace patterns.

~~~~Just Blab~~~~
The last time I posted, I had 2 balls of mohair and no idea what to do with it. I did a bias garter st scarf and hand warmers...then went out and bought 4 more skeins. If you haven't used it before, you really should. It's very pretty! I had the chenille too, which I used to make a weird twisty pattern with k1b and p1b's:

CO 14 with US 11 needles
Row 1 (WS): K1b, p1b, *k1b, k 1, p1b, p 1*, rep from * to * once for scarf (or to last 4 sts for other widths), on last 4 sts, k1b, k 1, p1b, k1b.
Row 2 (RS): K2b, p 1, p1B, *k 1, k1b,p 1, p1b*, rep from * to * once for scarf (or to last 2 sts for other widths), on last 2 sts, k2b.

The chenille is just about the softest stretchiest yarn I've ever used. It really would make one gorgeious blanket! I still don't know what to do with the LB suede, but BIG THANKS to the nice lady who told me to check out the LB Website for patterns. I've found a couple good ones there and it started a chain of checking every single yarn manufacturer's website.

Ok, your turn to blab. Please share your favorite eyelet and lace stitch patterns :-D
