  • The blanket looks wonderful!! I am in AWE and drooling on myself!!
    I did miss you for a few days there, but knew you had a life (I don’t so I was here everyday waiting. hehe)

  • The baby blanket is lovely.

  • You don’t call, you don’t write! We cancelled lunch today because clearly you don’t like Ann anymore. At least that’s what I told her.
    I LOVE the blanket. LOVE IT! Wish I had a baby to knit it for…. 😉

  • Oh and I guess I should clarify that I mean MY Ann, not yours.

  • Have to say I was one who was checking 2-3 times daily (at least). Love the blanket and the cubicle looks great! A window and natural light even!!!

  • oh that Argosy! I was just looking at that pattern this morning. Must say, that’s a lot of space in neutral there for you to cover with colorful knits…or maybe colorful plastic wrap?

  • Thanks for teaching us how to Cro-Kay!

  • What hip and chic baby will be the proud recipient of this beautiful blanket? You always do beautiful work but this really is especially fabulous. I am so impressed.
    How do you think that blanket pattern my do in hemp?

  • i love the blanket…how many balls of rowan denim did you use, and how large is it, approximately?

  • Excellent blanket! I’m so glad that it worked out (not that I doubted it would).
    So does the photo indicate you are back in your old digs? Hooray!

  • Are you sending out this kind of bat signal? (Welcome Back!)

  • Aiiiiee!! You’re, like, in your own apartment again! But it’s probably, like, almost like a whole other apartment by now!
    You still save that green phone for me? You still gonna sell the apartment it was in? I might be interested. Save you a brokers fee…

  • Kay, a room of your own? I can’t wait for the 360 photo tour!

  • I love all things Argosy!!! I am trying hard to finish some WIPs so I can CO for the wrap in my Kureyon!! Love the blankie!! Cant wait for the pattern for that!

  • What a clever idea for a blanket. It’s very striking.

  • I never comment, figuring I’ll be lost in the crowd, but I just want to say that you guys crack me up. That’s a fine Bat Cave you’ve got there.

  • Oooh. A bat cave… Is it actually a closet??? I am currently turning my guest bedroom closet into my own cubical of crafts. It is a nice size with a big window with lots of light. I would love to see more pictures when yours is done! Currently I am in need of inspiration for my design of mine!

  • Yep, I think you might have to rent out the space as well. I’ve pretty much given up on this particular knitting blog.

  • Me too.

  • So glad you are back, I was beginning to think I had computer troubles.
    Enjoy the bat cave, looks cozy.

  • I was gonna print a photo of this blog on a milk carton, but now that you’re back, I feel better. The blanket is smashing! And did you see her washcloth? Bet there’ll be KALs and all for the wrap.

  • Clever, clever “cro-Kay” edge. I’m saving it.

  • Awesome job, Kay! The blanket is gorgeous.

  • Oh, that is lovely!

  • Happiness is a cubicle of one’s own. But if you wanna come visit I’ll share my cubicle. Heck, it even has a visitor chair! And plenty of toys.
    The baby blanket is wonderful!

  • Whoo…I was checking the site 2 times a day waiting to see what’s up! We miss you when you guys aren’t around.
    Whats with the moving back and forth between apartments? Did you renovate? Is it blog fodder? I too am moving soon and hope to have a crafty space.
    Wicked cool blankey too. Touche cro-kay.

  • I can’t hardly wait to get thing into the dyepot(s). By the way, your Denimintuition is denimented–mindboggly how you got those squares to work out.

  • Bat caves……what a good idea of some pics or ideas to share. I moved to get one. Its grand. Now I have a room for weaving, sewing, knitting and housing orphaned cats and dogs……and my daughter when she occasionally decides she wants to paint. I had to remodel my kitchen though, to find free cupboards for it. But that turned out great too! Chris in Madison

  • Loved Argosy the minute I saw it, and began to cogitate immediately about whether it could be converted to a wrap. So thanks for leading the way and for linking to Vyvyan’s free patterns. Got some Noro Silk Garden that has had trouble finding itself.

  • Glad to see you are back in the blogging saddle again! Now I want to knit the Argosy wrap with my odd assortment of Noro. Yet another project to add to the list! Your blanket is darling!

  • I am so going to steal your idea and make an Argosy baby blanket.

  • Kay, thank you for reminding me of your insanely clever replacement for crocheted edging. I hate to crochet, and I have a mitered-square sock-yarn blankie that needs and anti-curl edge. And you just went and saved my sanity. Suuuh-weeeeet.

  • NIce blanket! I had trouble visualizing what it would look like back when you first started. And thanks for the link to the other Argosy patterns- the wrap is very appealing.

  • Oh Kay, I don’t know how to write this, your baby blanket is a lovely thing, but that wrap over at Vyvyan’s, well it just makes me swoon. Please, please don’t let that detract from my complimenting your creation. Thanks for spreading the gospel of Argosy. That is an example of taking a pattern and running with it.
    In other news, I will be in your neck of the woods for the Harlot’s grand Represent book launch. How in a sea of knitters we could meet, I don’t know. I just watched March of the Penguins again, so if you develop a distinctive enough call, or trill. I’ll be the one listening intently.

  • Okay, when ever I say “Cro-Kay” in my head, I think of those old commercials for margarine with the talking butter tub that says in a sing-song voice, “Par-kay”. You’re taking me back…

  • Well for Heaven’s sake welcome back! I have been checking and checking and so glad you are well and giving us an update –
    The blanket is absolutely lovely and I only wish I had seen that Argosy wrap before I started my own which may or may not be a disaster. I am waiting for the miracle that is blocking.

  • Wow, that blanket really looks great, a lot better than I thought it would. I have not knit a blanket yet, but this looks tempting. Great work!

  • LOVE the blanket, but could you please define “stashlet”? Is it a form of rationalization that I may have overlooked, as in ‘doesn’t merit full stash status, so doesn’t really count’??
    And I envy you your cubicle, plastic and all…

  • Magnificent blanket! And congratulations on yet another FO — may the same be true very soon for your cubicle! (Have you gotten “The Cubicle Song” yet via email? It’s priceless!) Hugs! /jb

  • Love the blanket.
    Who is it for? Or maybe it’s one of those things to just keep to look at.

  • I love the blanket and am very excited about technique you used on the edges. I’m definitely going to try that!

  • Gorgeous! That is one of the best baby blankets I’ve ever seen. Pretty please provide us with a loverly pattern! 😉

  • How many skeins of Rowan Denim did this take? A pregnant friend has fallen in love with this blanket and wants one knitted of hand-dyed yarn in particular colors. I’ve found the hand-dyer and now I need to know how much yarn to have her dye. I’d like to order the yarn fairly soon, so I don’t want to wait for the pattern.
    I was thinking of getting matching fingering or sport weight for a shawl, and the Argosy shawl looks very tempting indeed. Think of it, an entire Argonaut layette….
