Interesting website: 14th century knitted silk pouches

Sophia/Susan made one of those knitted 14th century pouches. She describes how to draw a pattern and she also uploaded some great black and white pictures of the original knitted pouches (the ones with the flowers that I like so much!):

I really love this, but I don't know if i'm going to give it a try. It really depends on whether I can find the right silk and knitting needles
