Love every single one of these baby blankets. So cute! Any of them would make lovely gifts for new babies.

This is a tidy little collection, and the beauty of it is that there are projects for every level of ability. The Beginner blankets arent just simple squares, but opportunities for novice crafters to expand their skills without overwhelming them. Even that Dragonfly Throw is much easier than it initially looks. Ive already worked my way through several examples in this collection, and look forward to working up even more.

Wow! If you can't find a baby afghan that you like in this ebook, I say give it up and go buy one. As always the book is packed with gorgeous projects that are, for the most part very easy. I have picked out two just browsing thru it. Wait until I woke down and really take a look.

No kidding! These are spectacular, and I sure wouldn't limit them to the kiddies. I've made a couple of these as lap blankets for seniors. They appreciate them even more.
