  • ok. wow. I’m so sorry I nagged you, Kay. This is a masterful post! I should have realized there would be more than just a modest snippet.
    I gotta go visit another site now and see how my bid is doing.
    xoxo Aara

  • Oh how I wish my salary would allow me to bid what that blanket is worth. (Market value, shmarket value.) It is stunning, and I hope it raises as much money as that kook paid for the St*rmore yarns…

  • Holy Jeebus! I can’t…WOW. I could not stop staring at that afghan.
    Congrats on the current status of your auction…that’s a lot of shipping charges covered, ladies!

  • It is absolutely gorgeous. Great idea to auction it off.

  • I’m just in awe of your sign/headstone/heart message generating prowess. You are a Goddess of the Useless Tools of the Internets. Proving after all that they aren’t so useless, but instead can promote Noro Loveliness and increase the Guilt of Big EBay Spenders.
    Awesome post!!

  • Fabulous ! You,and everyone else,are wonderful.

  • Diapers schmiapers! On second thought … But you had me there for a moment with that headstone. (Not so sure about the church sign – if the end is near, what do I need a blankie for?)

  • It is absolutely gorgeous, and such a worthy cause. I hope it goes for big big bucks!

  • Wonderful sign and headstone support for the afghan! Work of art afghan! It appears your eBay auction is going well! Congratulations for a job well done (afghan and post included!).

  • It is beyond beautiful, the Noro Afghan and the mission. And I really miss the afghanalong.

  • Wow, even my husband thinks the blanket is beautiful. Me, I’m sadly beginning to be more impressed with the photo-shopping–I want my headstone to say something about knitting (or the local church)

  • the blankets warm my soul……

  • Blimey! I’ve got mentioned on your blog! Me, walking the streets of London? (that has a slightly different connotation over here….). I had a love affair with Noro for several years (but I’m better now) hence all the odd balls. It was purely and simply the colours – Polly will tell you I don’t do subtle. Delighted to see auction going so well. Hope to meet you one day! Jill R. from London – have got the book ordered from Amazon!

  • Aara! I’m pulling on my Silk Garden socks and cheering for you all the way. xo, c.

  • Goddess of the Useless Tools of the Internets! That is both hysterical, and quite the title to live up to! I love the afghan, and the useless tools, and the putting on of the knitting skates. Me, I’m bobsleddin’. Hope I don’t fall off.

  • The price, she is a climbing! Go afghan, raise money, go afghan, go! go!

  • Oh, stop it, now. I’m all teary and I can’t DO teary right now.

  • An all Noro afghan! Beautiful and luscious to the eye. Great job to everyone involved.

  • Beautiful afghan! And look how high the bidding has gotten – amazing!

  • oh, my. i didn’t even know where to put my comment, i was catching up on all of the gorgeousness. pretty pretties everywhere: afghan, quilt, baby in dragon jacket — you all know how to do a thing!

  • I love that blanket… and how did you know that there was a trail of Noro behind Jill? Seriously, she was wearing Noro when I saw her yesterday and I reckon I can recognise the left over bit that went into the blanket.
    well done for and good luck on the auction!

  • that afghan is beautiful — all of them are — and since i’m a bit of an afghan freak and i love noro, i may have to make my own rendition … after the olympics.

  • LOL on the tombstone. I personally think your tombstone will read: STILL KNITTING. SEND DENIM.

  • I would gladly bid (again and again) but the price has now exceeded my carneedsnewbrakessoon student budget. Seeing all of the work that went into it brought a new hope in people, and that alone is worth more then I have in the bank!

  • Wow the All-Noro afghan came out amazing. I’ll have to admit that I too complain about Kureyon’s scratchiness, and I have yet to pick out the VM in Silk Garden but I know I will be.
    I wonder how much of my stash I’d have to sell on Ebay to afford to win the afghan.

  • I so love the Afghan!!! It’s glorious in thought and apperance!
    The auction is going gangbusters!!
    Good for….everybody!
    And thaks for the chuckle…you make me smile!

  • Wow, them’s some gorgeous blankets! The bids are rapidly approaching my monthy salary. Yeesh.

  • How about a way for people who would like to bid on the afghan but can’t afford its (worthy) current bid to donate a little something to Afghans for Afghans? It might be fun to see what the rest of us can come up with before the auction ends…

  • Wouldn’t that be a terrific afghan to wrap up in on a cold, gray day? Gorgeous.
    Signed, One who complains about scratchiness but falls for Kureyon everytime.

  • That is absolutely gorgeous. I am such a sucker for Noro…God I love the stuff….my license plate should read … Oooh Noro!
