  • Ah,pink and orange.That I’ll lovingly do ! How many blankies were you planning for ? Should you perhaps restrict us to one square,made of 4 mitred blocks,each ?
    I really like the fork arrangement.
    Carolyn[Girl Reaction] does orange and fuchsia with real style.I love it,but really can’t wear it.
    I’m twittering now…

  • very happy at the addition of pink/fucsia to orange, now you are talking!

  • Cut to the year 2035…Jamie is at The White Swan Hotel interviewing a Chinese literary lion about his oeuvre for The New Yorker. (A Nobel Laureate herself, Jamie was the obvious choice.) She approaches the “Business Center” sign (a virtual sign, it is 2035…)and feels overcome with tears and a vague memory of her Aunt Kay…
    But as her deadline looms, there’s no time to reason why…
    Lori in Los Angeles, daydreaming about the woman that Lis is going to raise!!!

  • I love the pink and orange!!!!

  • I can’t believe I knew every single click-on-it reference without clicking. I don’t know if I feel terribly old, or terribly hip. I’m actually thinking saying “hip” makes me sound old. Pinks and oranges will be great! I should just sent the tank top I made J in pink and orange, because she’s always refused, very politely, to wear it. She DOES want a log cabin blankie though, now firmly in the WIPS pile…

  • I have one corner knit in bright orange and yellow… but may have to start over with orange and pink. Or just add a pink corner to my square. Choices!!!

  • Susan, I hate to tell you, but I think getting all my references qualifies you as old, but having an excellent memory, which is some consolation. Nobody ever gets the ‘Serpentine, Sheldon, Serpentine!’ reference but I keep repeating it anyway, trying to get everyone to rent the old ‘In-Laws’ movie with Peter Falk and Alan Arkin. HILARIOUS, and really, how many movies are truly hilarious? There are some situations in life that call for the ‘Serpentine!’ command and no other.
    Melissa–I may have to make a rule that there are no re-dos. Orange and yellow are GREAT. I’m just saying to throw some pink in the square somewhere, if you have pink. xoxo Kay

  • I think your forks are rilly beautiful. You’re a regular photo stylist, hon.

  • And one question about keeping this blankie a secret–what do we do when Lis is over there at the White Swan Googling “orange blankie unlike Wednesday Addams”? We are B.U.S.T.E.D.

  • And finally, this 4-cornered square limit has got to be killing you, who made the 80-square psycho squares. Can you stand being part of such a . . . small . . . projeck???

  • The Sisterhood is charitable, but probably not fooled by your characterization of my “eureka” moment vis a vis the pink. It was really the critical mass of pink and orange buttercream on Jamie’s cake that inspired, continues to haunt, me.
    If you get too many squares for a blankie, how about a matching floor cushion for the learning walker to plop on?

  • Kay – I’m in on this too – hope Heather told you, but thought I’d just confirm! So glad pink is in there too!
