of the blankets
i also made a fifth one at Deborah's request
completely in neutral colors of
ivory, grey, camel and beige
the night before she returned
to Halifax for university
i imagine it is keeping her warm
during her studies:)

All of these blankets are wonderful. What a fantastic source of cashmere you must have! How cozy all your family must be this winter. I hope you saved the special red cross blanket for yourself Dr Margie :)

These look wonderfully soft and warm. When I am in stores, I always touch the cashmere sweaters. :) Imagine being wrapped in one.

I love your cashmere blankets - the thought of them, the gifting of them, and their designs! I just bought my almost-college-bound son another (his second) cashmere sweater (deeply discounted) -- I think having even a little cashmere in one's life makes for a feeling of LUXURY, don't you?
