So Beth is back from her Vacation, and as usual she had a few blankets to donate. This one she used the wave pattern and I love the colour combination she used for this one.

This blanket, Beth designed the pattern and if you see it up close you would think she used a variegated yarn to knit this blanket. But she used a few colours to make it up. Great Job Beth,

Another amazing colour combination and blanket.

And this blue blanket, Beth said she used two strains of yarn to knit this blanket.

Her the sherbet pattern in pink from Beth.

Another gorgeous blanket from Beth. Beth they are all beautiful!

This is one of my favorite pattern, little miss sunshine baby blanket. So easy and it works up very quickly.

Another one of my fvas, the Larkfoot pattern. It could be done in three or four colours also and will look amazing.
Well I would like to thank you all for your time and great work.
