June 2008

June 2008 is Barry’s Blanket Bonus month!  Free balloons and hot dogs for the kids and TWO blankets for you!  I’ve been remiss in picturing a great Beacon and here is an unused late 1920’s example retaining its original factory cardboard tag.  The blues in this blanket are truly blue-tiful.

And here’s the most unusual Pendleton round corner I’ve ever encountered.  Someone was asleep at the wheel and an errant spool of black wool found its way into one part of the blanket and wasn’t repeated elsewhere!  This wonderfully busy design  continued into the 1920’s in a square cornered version, but this is the only round corner in this pattern I’ve ever seen and dates to 1904.
