  3. This blanket has such an interesting look to it! At first glance, I assumed it was a regular V-Stitch blanket, but it's actually only a version of that. Very neat - adding to my list of things to do and pinning.
    Thanks for sharing this at our Yarn Fanatic Party! And for continuing to party with us.
