  • Wow, that is a lot of squares. My one little square that I have ready to send doesn’t seem like much, but still, can I have the address? I’m sure it would be happier in a group of it’s peers:) Thanks!

  • in the words of mehitabel the cat
    toujours gai ann toujors gai
    thank you from a murky square

  • mehitabel the cat is a personal favourite of mine, elizabeth.
    Woo hoo – 700 squares. But don’t think you’re gonna stop the knitters from sharing their love. I predict you’ll hit one thousand by the time this is done.

  • 700 squares? That is either one really large blanket, or a couple of smaller ones. I figured I would need 144 sqares to do a blanket large enough for Afghans for Afghans baby project. 700 squares scares me a little…….and makes my wrists ache. But when your’e done……pictures, we need pictures! If I could fly across the country to help you sew up, I guarantee, I would!

  • Kay,
    I didn’t get to square, but I’m happy to help in the sewing and even organize a Montreal-based sewing thing if need be.

  • kay….kay….kay,…..what’s our next project? we must continue the LOVE!

  • Way to go, Squared Knitters! I’ll be finishing up an A4A this weekend, fueled by Knitting Water appropriate to the hour. “Knitting Water”…I love it!

  • snaps for invoking archy and mehitabel.
    i lurve them, ms. airheart.
    would use an exclamation point but can’t use the shift key, you know.

  • Love the bin — full of and surrounded by SQUARES!

  • By knitting water you mean..white wine? vodka? gin?

  • OHHH! Another bunch of Archie & Mehitabel fans? Yes!
    (I believe M would also have said, “Archie, what am I going to do with all these dam* kittens?” I think Kay could justifiably adapt that sentiment…to “dam* squares!” But then, Kay KNOWS what she’s going to do with them!
    Kay, I wish I lived closer, I’d come help sew…You are just amazing…

  • theres a dance or two
    left in this old dame yet
    have a good week end kay
    hope you are the same

  • Love the squares and can’t wait to see the end product.
    YOur last phrase (and Loving it) reminded me of Get smart! We’re just at that part in Season one where Max started to say that! Was that your intention?!?!?

  • The squares were such a nice project to work on. Easy, portable, quick and mostly mindless. Perfect knitting for all the spaces between. Part of me wishes I had made more of them, because they were relaxing even when knit at warp speed.

  • I am definitely willing to join a sewing bee in by or to host one on the west side of the Hudson. Let me know which you need more– though it would be fun to actually meet if you do it before Jan 6 when I must fly off again.

  • Do I detect a bit of panic in your phrase, “but there is no need to knit more,” Lucy?
    And Hanukkah is a tad early too–nothing like a huge project dovetailing with a huge present-y holiday…
    In the words of Karoly to Kerry Strug (google it, young knitters), “YOU CAN DO IT!”

  • Hey there, I go to Sarah Lawrence up here in Yonkers and would love to be notified of a good ‘ol sewing-up bee.- Liz
