    This is very very cool and I’m sad that I wasn’t paying enough attention to be able to supply my own square to it.

    #13 – Century of the Fruitbat? Get with the times, my friend! It’s the Century of the Anchovy now.

    Yeah, there wasn’t quite enough nitpicking in this thread yet.

    More related to the main post: that is completely awesome.

    blessed are the patch-makers for they shall get scumble. Well done!

    #20 Manny– We made the squares and sent them in and she seamed them together and then put a backing on to take care of any loose ends from colorwork and to generally pretty it up a bit.

    What a great thing. Almost makes me wish I could quilt. :)

  7. Talia says:

    Knit rather. Also, apparently I wish I could read. :p

  8. Manny says:

    Is it quilted? Or just a regular afghan?

    “I Aten’t Dead” – that’s the sign Granny Weatherwax has to pin on herself when she’s away “borrowing” an animal. Just in case they bury her, y’know… me likey!

    Well, to be anally precise, it’s crocheted.
    But who cares, it’s wicked cool and he likes it! :-)

  11. normanack says:

    Although now that I look at it more closely, I think it’s knit and crocheted. Just shows to go you what happens when I try to be anal. :-)

    What a wonderful gift. Kudos to everyone involved. :)

    The squares are mostly knit, (a few crocheted, I think) but the edging is crochet, so it’s easy to be fooled :) (Disclaimer: one of the squares is mine, so I’ve got an in on this one.)

    So many busy seamstresses! Just warms my heart:)

  19. Karen M says:

    Actually, other than the edging, I’m having a hard time finding *any* crocheted squares.

    Still, an awesome, awesome project. Nicely done!

    @ # 10 – we prefer to call them knitters of negotiable affection these days. It’s the century of the Fruitbat, after all.

  21. thorn says:
