It's been so cold these past few days that all I have wanted to do is knit on the sofa, wrapped up in a blanket watching the Gilmore Girls! My favourite is a huge white knitted blanket that is so perfect for this time of the year. More and more people are making their own chunky knitted blankets, with huge yarns, knit up on big needles.
For a great knitting project, take a look at these free blanket kitting patterns, with many of them suitable for beginners. A great homemade gift can be made in a few hours that will be cherished for years!
