For my birthday, my best friend surprised me with this amazing blanket that she made. Hand-knitted from Merino wool, it's a one-of-a-kind treasure. Amazingly soft, luscious and warm, it has become the favorite blanket in our home and the most talked about. No really, everyone who comes over insists I bring it out so they can see it...again.
For those who are talented and can knit, instructions and supplies can be found online. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aiLBniabPC4
For those, like me, who can not knit, we either must hope a great friend makes us one or go shopping. These are the ones I have found and yes, they are expensive, but if taken care of will become a treasure in your home...or someone else's.
