This is soooooo bizarre. I cast on a hap shawl that can double as a blankie for traveling for myself this past weekend out of black alpaca. Just goes to show you, great minds think alike.

See you on Thursday!

Count me in too - a couple of hours before reading about your latest project, I saw this on ravelry and cast on with some brown handspun that had been waiting for a project. (I have Ysolda's Whimsical Knits in my library, so my plan is to make a diagonal garter stitch center, and then use the edging from her Hap Blanket.) It may get a colorful edge like the one I linked, but the coincidence is strange.

Thank you, thank you, Feral Knitter. I'm so pleased to have won the book give-away and so look forward to reading "Even Spiders Tell Stories When They Weave". It's an extra sweetness that you pulled my name on my birthday!

And aren't you blessed to attend Meg Swanson's Knitting Camp--and for many years!!! You go, girl! Tell Meg she has many admirers from afar.

I have three colors of Jacob I'm spinning and I want to knit a half-hap. Not sure yet whether I'll take your approach, or something else...

I need to do a quick but nice baby blanket - thanks for the ideas! I have some good border options, so this will let me be both quick and creative!!

I just finished the center of mine, and picked up for the border, and I thought of you, and am wondering how your blanket is going?
