Breathtaking Blankets

Blanket knitting is not for the faint of heart. It requires anintense commitment; financial investment, time, and careful attention. The patterns I havehighlighted today embody just that. Intentional yarn choices are key: finding fibers that will lasta lifetime and beyond. Cables, lace, and twisted stitches abound; you wont get bored knitting thesespecial pieces.
