Just finished listening. I'm working on a baby blanket as well, but the baby isn't due til Oct. so I have time.
re: cornMy husband teaches medieval history at university part time (when he's not being an awesome reference librarian) and here's the deal: back in the day, corn meant kernel/seed. So you'll read about people grinding corn, but they don't mean maize type corn. It's fun to watch for paintings and illustrations of rural medieval settings in which people had read 'corn' but forgotten 'Columbus', lol.
