  • Hey, we need to see the whole thing! Miters and stripes all in one blanket?
    And was the corn in a maze? We once went through a maize maze in England. Amazing, I know.

  • Two strands? You knit two of the Cascade 220 together with a size 10? BTW, it looks great.

  • Joseph definitely has a future as a high priced Rowan model. Love the way he picked the crocs to co-ordinate with the blanket. He’s a pro!

  • Lovely warm blankie. I am fond of knitting with two strands together myself — makes a mighty warm sweater for some child in Mongolia or Afghanistan.
    I think “womenfolk” goes nicely with “cornfield”, don’t you? Just sayin’…

  • Awesome yarn pOrn…love the heather!

  • Beautiful blankets – love the blankets. Just thumbed through Martin Storey’s book and that was my thought exactly about the models – what do you think of Kaffe’s new book? I wasn’t going to buy it (since I have all the old ones and the pattern library) but I did!!!!! Love that gridlock pattern – of course am weak with admiration for Charleston in the background!

  • The blanket, the cornfield, the model– gorgeous stuff. And now I’ll forever think of corn mazes as “maize mazes”. Perfect.

  • oh, yeah::
    gaze into the middle distance while appearing unaware of his astonishing beauty
    the blanket is gorgeous… perfect.

  • Dude – you seriously went ALL OUT with the finishing. Applied i-cord border?
    But, uh, correction, I used size 15s. FIFTEENS. Which I think I left at your place, actually. From the Denise set. I’ll have to waddle up west to pick them up sometime soon while I still can!
    Funny how you think the gauge of the last was better – I was thinking how great it was that I had to match your gauge and learned a great lesson in squish attained by knitting at large gauge and that naturally, it did not ruin the knitting, but actually made it a little… squishier. In a rilly good way.

  • Are those pumpkins on the ground ? In the cornfield? Fantastic blanket, can we see it opened out and spread flat in all its glory, please.

  • ‘womenfolk’?? seriously???

  • cornfield……handknits……womenfolk…..pregnancy…..please tell me you were wearing shoes!!!
    But really, if womenfolk never made such gorgeous, thoughtful, from the heart knitting, then who would?

  • The menfolk here thought the Rowan models were hilarious. Also in need of a haircut.

  • Looks great! and your corn is so much greener than around here – they are already harvesting it (Indiana).

  • Awesome.. looks great for snuggling… and someone will appreciate it so much! However, it’s still HOT.. where I live- can’t imagine having a blanket on me right now- but, I’m sure that will change in a few weeks- maybe even w/in one week? (I’m still wearing capri pants and sandals)
    I made some hats to send over to Afghanistan.
    Mostly, I’m just in awe.. that you knitted a blankie.. with that ‘amount of knitting’ without poking your eyes out w/ the sharp pointed sticks.. (that we ‘womenfolk’ would call knitting needles) I’m inspired.

  • The double post is apparently.. because I’m so far away? You know that ‘echo sound’ that you sometimes get on International calls? Well, maybe it affects the ‘Internet’ too?
    Hey, it could.. ๐Ÿ˜€
    Oh and do please, purty please.. check out my less than one week old new blog. ๐Ÿ˜€ *I fought it as long as I could.. I now am part of the masses.

  • Get that boy to an agent – he has the gift! And the blanket is gorgeous too : )
    ps: I’m a big fan of folk-y type words – makes me remember that we’re all a little less techy than we’d like to believe we are.

  • Hmmmmm. Can we have a pattern for the big-miter blanket? (I love it!)

  • This beautiful mitery blanket is fabu! So ya’ll used two strands held together (rock on with the big needles) and what did the finished size come to? How many hanks…skeins, whatever…of the 220 did ya’ll end up using?
    Enquiring minds want to know.

  • Do you remember those TV commercials from some time in the 80’s for the Enquirer? “Enquiring minds want to know!”

  • Water Mill, sigh. My mom grew up in Wainscott; you’re making me nostalgic. There are no lack of cornfields here in Indiana, but we are short on fresh clams…
