Wow! That is an incredible blanket! I've been wanting try and figure out how to do a stamp-stype quilt in knitting, but the thought of knitting all those tiny squares kill me.


Yikes, what bargains! And how nice that you got to talk to the knitter. She must be happy knowing they went to an appreciative home.

Beautiful blanket! Now I want to start stock-piling a rainbow of yarn.

Hey Li...beautiful blanket! Would you be so kind as to e-mail me your herringbone scarf pattern? Thanks.



You are truley a yarn addict! You need to go into recovery by knitting me a vest. hee! hee!

That blanket is certainly an eyecatcher! I love it when you get to talk to the crafter/artist too.Would appreciate your herringbone scarf pattern also. Thanks so much for a lovely blog!


You were wise to snap up those treasures. I imagine the daughters are glad to see them go to someone who will appreciate and love them. By the way, I tried to respond to the comment you made on my blog, but the mail program kicked it back. My sil got the recipe for that fantastic cake out of a magazine. I can get it for you if you so desire. She offered it to me, but I know I'll never attempt something like that.


You really lucked out with those lovely knits. And congratulations on your published pattern for a good cause.

Wow Those are beautiful! I actually bought a well knit but ugly sweater from a thrift store because I admired the construction so much.


Twelve dollar socks and you didn't get me any?! I would have paid you back.


The blanket is beautiful! I have to wonder at how they arrived at $23, though ;)


That blanket is incredible!


Wow, you won the lottery there! Too cool. I would love to get a copy of the Herringbone Rib Scarf, when you have the time to send it to me! Thanks! :)



Wow, I can't believe the prices you got those things for! That blanket looks like so much work and is so pretty!


What a steal. The blanket and scarf are just gorgeous! I want to find a craft fair with such reasonable prices.


That blanket is amazing! What a score!


I love that blanket- how the heck could there be a price so low for that??

And I love your herringbone rib scarf if you'd be so kind to send a copy my way!


That is so sweet that they appreciate Grandma's work and want to share it. She has a lovely sense of colour. And you have a good eye for a good buy.


That blanket is gorgeous! Is it wool or acrylic? Even at acrylic, the yarn had to cost multiples of that!
