  • Well, the rug looks impressive so far. I’d be all for trying it on as a skirt/minidress/ballgown, but sadly, I don’t live in the Chicago area. Have a great trip!

  • Cool lookin scrap rug you got there. Was watching some old season one Project Runway episodes last eve… sigh, the bygone days of Austin Scarlett and the world of couture. Wait! Do ya think the rug/gown will be coming to Portland? It could be respectably long enough by then to drag behind us down the runway/aisles of Powell’s– bring it on!

  • Brr– that Lamb’s Pride Bulky sure looks cozy this morning 😉 have a fab trip, have a fun time!! mwah

  • That sounds awesome, but how are you going to felt that beast?

  • It’s a good choice. You can wear it as a skirt in the mornings when it is bitter cold here (seriously, have you looked at the weather?). Can’t wait to see you guys!

  • Yeah, how big is your washing machine, anyways!
    Verrry pretty colours, indeed!

  • Great rug. I need to make one of those!– Amy

  • Hmmm, a dogsled blanket, maybe a dog blanket, mine would like that.

  • Since you mentioned Gee’s Bend quilts, I just wanted to make sure you knew that they are being exhibited in Philadelphia until December 14th at the Phil Museum of Art. I saw the show at the Whitney years ago, and I must go see it again. It’s just so fabulous to these works of art in person.

    Knit on!

  • ! That is so beautiful. I really love how the colors are working together — it will be such a nice hit of color as autumn sets in.

  • Just got the book the other day and all the Fair Isle projects are divine! Sucks that my eyes completely glaze over any time I try to figure out how you go about knitting them, but someday I WILL sit down and learn. You both are a riot and bring such fun to knitting, thanks!

  • Wow! Beautiful.

  • Such pretty knitting! It makes me think of the way some yarns look in the hank, and then knitting them into a fabric is sometimes less satisfying…you’ve created the pre-knit effect BY knitting! How cool is that?
    of course this is all just my reaction…hope it comes across as a compliment!

  • Kay, about that Euroflax yarn, obviously you haven’t been to the Knot A Problem group on Ravelry. It’s a group of weirdos, umm, people, who actually love to untangle skeins or yarn! And, they’re willing to provide untangling service to others who don’t relish that task.

  • You DYED your eyebrows? That’s commitment to art!
    Oh yea, Kay, now that I look closely, I see that those brows are not of a color found in nature!

  • Hey Kay. That rug will be at least 5 feet tall when you get it ready for the washer. Just ask a 4 foot 11 inch knitter. It’s not real good for KIP but you could shock them at the airport if you tried. I love your rug. It’s yummy. I would be making one myself if I didn’t have about 23 Christmas trees left on my list to finish and a bunch of presents to finish along the way too.

  • Mineral oil (ie baby oil) will take the glue right off.
    Loved the video.
    Excited to see what the rug looks like flat.
