I found lace-weight cotton yarn that is not mercerized* at Walmart of all places today!  It's soft and fairly fine and on clearance so I bought all five skeins they had for the late 19th century openwork stockings I've been wanting to make.  (Four would probably be enough, but with it being on clearance, prudence dictated purchasing the fifth as well.)  I wish it were a bit finer, but I think it's as good as it's going to get.  

Life being what it is, there's no way I'll start knitting them for at least six months, but I'm excited that I have the yarn.  Now to find a pattern I like...



*or at least, if it is mercerized, it doesn't have the hard finish that most of the finer weights of knitting cotton have
