          I knit baby blankets of various sizes.
          I love the choices; many colors, and color combinations.
          I love that the blankets get softer after washing.

                      I knit baby afghans for the Air Force base located close to our home as a thank you for keeping all of us safe. While I knit I can hear the planes fly overhead which is a thrill!

                      Wide variety of colors makes I adaptable to a number of different style products. I also have children and grandchildren who can be hard on fabrics, so it's a useful product for those who won't bother handwashing, etc.
