  • Yes, that is a splendid blanket. I’m keen on the denim these days, having just acquired a brand new vintage retro copy of the Rowan Denim book. I like this blankie in these colours, but am willing to be impressed by the denim version. You’d have to use ecru, I think. And a touch of the black! Oooh, getting exciting!

  • Whoa! The photograph looks like a painting! Fantastic!
    Okay, going back to actually read the pattern now 🙂

  • Uh, when did my name become “pine”? Sorry!
    Anyway, did you see the photo of the BACK of the blankie??? Fantastic AGAIN! Fantastic MORE!!!

  • That’s right Kay Rowan Denim Gardiner it’s a G.I.F.T….you make me smile….I just went through a baby quilt stage, seemed like everyone I knew had a baby and expected a quilt, got quite sick of them! Maybe knitting one would be a nice change. I can always put it up for the someday grandkids like my grandmother did. When I had mine she was gone but I had a nice box of baby daygrowns and dresses like she always made for people. Happy Knitting!

  • Rowan Denim? I am so shocked…

  • Yeah, by now your yarn stash must be a regular ‘den(im) of inKNITquity’ (but we wouldn’t have it any other way!).

  • Today I saw “green” home insulation made from (radically) recycled denim and I thought of you. “It’s the kind of stuff that might actually make Kay interested in learning to spin,” I thought.

  • You know what else would work with this? Two different colors of Noro, along the lines of that Jared Flood Noro Striped scarf.
    Noro, sigh.

  • that blanket is beautiful and your rowan denim inspiration is indeed truly inspired!
    heh heh, thanks for making me smile tonight.

  • You were born to knit this blanket. Mitered Garter Stitch Borders!
    I about tumped over.

  • Tanis Fiber Arts is definitely one to watch – young, creative and accomplishing stuff!
    I tried her sock yarn, and it was very nice stuff.
    And she has a fun blog.
    Just a happy customer over here.

  • Umm I didn’t mean to use “stuff” in two consecutive sentences …
    Just in a hurry to wave a fan flag for Tanis.

  • That is a beautiful blanket, and I’m positively STUNNED that you thought to do it in denim ; )

  • Yes! Denim! It’s inspired! (can’t wait to see it)

  • Rowan denim? Really? Who would have expected that from you? My real question is whether you have asked Rowan to put you on their marketing payroll…you deserve some placement dollars at a minimum!

  • Ah, to be your favorite yarn, ever. Does Rowan know how good they have it??

  • That is a great baby blanket. The next time I need to knit a blanket, I think I will keep that pattern in mind!

  • Scrumptious! Brilliantly simple. Tanis has got it GOING ON. Think of all the ways to have fun with this construction. And her version is so frackin baby-perfect.

  • That is spectacular. Did you see this one? http://www.ravelry.com/projects/milele/fraternal-twins-denim-blanket-boy
