  • Hey, we might be in NY in September! I could join in! How cool… x x x

  • Oh! Oh! What is that stitch??? The one in the first picture, on the left, second from the top, a black square with a blue center with a green stripe through it? And it’s at the bottom of the second picture? That looks soooo cool. I love it!
    I can guess which one is “Lap Pool” but I’m stuck in the others. Any chance of a legend?
    I wish I could come to Manhattan and help, but it’s too far from St. Louis. I will think enviously of you every Monday evening.
    Thanks for the wonderful blog. I’ve even made a buttonhole bag, but don’t know where to send in the picture. I love the sidebar too. If only I had something to do for the State Fair….

  • Man, that is gorgeous! Carolyn is a genius and it will look fabulous with the sashing and corner blocks.

  • Man, that is some kinna dee-lish-is! Wow.
    I’m totally up for the sash-and-blocking if there’s any left to be done after I get back from vacation in mid-Sept.
    I’ll bring fancy French or German snacks if you leave some stitchin for me!

  • Totally and completely in. Fabulous squares.

  • In! Did you doubt that? Except if I’m in Switzerland.

  • Oh. My. Gourd. Those squares are fabulously gorgeous. I want them. Better yet, I want to make things just like them. All hail Carolyn!

  • Those squares are beautiful! Hail, Carolyn, indeed!

  • Ooh. I think I’m going to print out those photos and tack them up over my computer as a daydreaming aid. Wish I could come help.

  • How stunning! Proof that you don’t need fancy shmancy yarn and a 5 page pattern to produce something incredible.
    Can’t wait to see this one finished.

  • OK I hate to be nasty or anything, but I am rilly rilly good at eBay. I pride myself on my sniping ability. I’ll try to be all nice and everything, but that blanket is giving me fits. So fantastic. Must. Possess.
    I shall bring Pigs in Garter Stitch Blankets to the sewup.

  • OMG! I want to come over! I SO want to come over and knit whit you guys! I’ll start saving up money for the airplane ticket.

  • How gorgeous and inspiring! Now I know what to do with my leftovers, after I redo these last two bits of dim sum meow, that my own dear felines thought they’d test out for their pals, and promptly lost behind the fridge. Though I think, since I work in cotton mostly, that I will be making Pantone Washcloths.

  • Kay,
    I would love to join in the fun! Is is okay that I don’t know how to sash and block? I am not a knitting pro like you guys, but I am a fast learner. Can I bribe you with yummy treats? (Baking is my specialty!)

  • Kudos to Carolyn – those squares are beautiful!

  • I wish I was in the neighborhood but alas…
    How many blankets were made in all for the knitalong? I’ve been dying to know.

  • thank you, one and all, and mostly kay….i am truly not worthy of all this blogging attention in the kudos department…i’m really very shy! whatever happens to the “lives” of these squares will warm my heart in every possible way…..love!

  • i’d say that i’m in, but you knew that already. right? aw, who’m i kidding – count me in! count me in!

  • to jenn, etc., who want to learn of absolute wackiness in the naming of squares:
    top row: #5-“prairie”
    2nd row: #1-(mock cable)”ivy, but not league”
    #3-“california lap pool”
    #4-“sorbet avec oreos”
    4th row: #2-“patriotic polo”
    #5-“legal pad compressed”
    and some were named, prior to knitting….crazy?… but happy!

  • Lovely squares! Really looking forward to seeing the finished blanket, and perhaps doing a spot of bidding…
    Wish I could join in the sashing and blocking (and find out how to do it) but alas, no more time off this year so it’ll have to be a virtual kind of joining in!

  • hooray! carolyn, the sight of (and the names for) yr squares will make me smile all day! that is going to be one gorrrrgeous blanket. who will be lucky enough to have it grace their home?
    will be hanging around come Sept. to read about the sashing & the blocking.

  • wow, that is the most beautiful afghan i have seen!!

  • Oh I wish I was still in NY and could come and play too. Sadly the place where I work seem to expect me to show up every day, 5 days a week. It’s so so unfair 😉

  • I would love to help you sew up these beautiful squares!! Keep me posted on the dates…
