I take a 3-post break from the Curlicue, and what happens? Michelle and Deb (both blogless) specifically write me e-mails, and Zarah leaves a comment demanding to see pictures of Curlicue progress! Aren’t you all little grumperinas?!? 🙂

But your feedback keeps my interest high and prevents me from putting down the Curlicue needles for too long a period of time. Besides, I aim to please ;).


Seven sections completed – that’s almost halfway! And, yes, I enjoy selecting the “progress” color for each post.

Speaking of: now that I’ve knit a good chunk of this blanket and understand how the sections come together, I can tell you that each individual curlicue can be a different color! Imagine the possibilities:


So many Curlicues, so little time!

    I really like the first combination… I could imagine it in medium and dark blue….

    Oooo… it makes me feel all giddy.. hehee

    I’m amazed that you’re getting it done so fast! Go grump go!!

    And that’s the lovely thing about blogs, they are so motivating when folks come out of the woodwork to ask about your progress on this or that 🙂

    Would you consider making a multicolored one or once you’re done with this, are you going to be done forever with the pattern? I usually don’t like knitting up a pattern twice, but if it’s a really fun pattern I’ll do it.

    Wait… the middle one looks like a star! It’s perfect, it’s destined to be…

    Maybe when I finish the million other things. 😉

    Swear to you – I’ve been sitting here knitting on my prairie blanket thinking about your curlicue! Oh my gosh – every time I see it I WANT TO KNIT IT! You are doing amazing with it. Tell the truth – is it really that complicated? Is it getting easier? The color combinations are amazing. Personally, I’m loving the last color combinations – three similar colors together – changing each grouping. JUST AMAZING!

    Also, I’m LOVING the prairie blanket. What a beautiful, beautiful blanket it’s going to be. I keep daydreaming about a sweater in that stockinette/garter stitch rib. I think it would be great. Thanks again for introducing me to these patterns.

    Wow, I didn’t know I had so much power! Maybe I’ll have to start asking you to make things for me! Mwah ha ha!

    How did you manage to make so much progress and knit that big ole double sided dog bed too? I’m so jealous of you super-speedy knitters.

    It’s such an interesting pattern. Do you think that the fear factor and difficulty level are justified? You seem to be knitting it up so quickly!

    Ok, I bought the pattern because I was so intrigued. It looks so simple written out. Now I have to start encouraging my friends and relatives to get pregnant because I’m not having any baby! Mulitcolored sections looks like a great idea, but wouldn’t changing colors disturb the reversibility of the pattern?

  9. Ann

    Wow, those color combinations are really inspiring – esp. the middle one. How big is the finished curlicue going to be?

  10. Allison

    Wow! You’re knitting right along! You’ll be finished in no time! It really looks fantastic. And I have to admit, I was jonesing for a curlicue update myself. Thanks for providing! 😉

    Holy crap that curlicue is awesome. You are making me want to knit one in ROY G BIV.

    You are one talented knitter.
