Storytime:

“Boundaries define us. They define what is me and what is not me. A boundary shows me where I end and someone else begins, leading me to a sense of ownership.”
~Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend in the book Boundaries.
I haven’t read any other book more than this book, other than my bible. I believe boundaries should be “taught” in the public school system starting in kindergarten. Teaching them to respect other people’s things, feelings and bodies. Defining what it means to be a good friend and eliminate the word “bully”. It’s about their behavior, not who they are as human beings.
I believe everyone has the capability of change, owning their behaviors and making better choices.
We need somewhere to start and this book is chock-full of ways to improve in different areas of life with friends, spouse, coworkers, family, children and most importantly “self.”

    I love this stitch and want to make a blanket but I just have a couple questions.

    You recc a cast on of 76 stitches, what size blanket is this for and if I want to make a larger blanket how many should I cast on?

    I looked at other Feather and Fan afghans and most everyone knits row 4 but you have us pearling that row, is this correct?

    Thanks for this pattern, it is beautiful and I don’t even like gold/yellows!

      You’re very welcome, I’m so glad that you like it :) This is one of my favorite stitches! I added the dimensions to the pattern, thank you for catching that! And I added the increments to make it larger, if you like. This particular fan and feather stitch doesn’t have a ridge in it, some patterns do though. I like the ridge too, I made a washcloth with it. I was surprise at how flat this lays without the ridge. Feel free to make it with the purl row to add a ridge to it if you like, it’s your blanket :)
