knitted blanket 2012 by amona on Flickr
Here’s what she said about the process - what an artist - I’m inspired! 

Knitted Blanket 2012
Raw fleece: 3 days to wash and dry; about 2-3 years to hand-card the wool and spin on a Turkish drop-spindle; at least two 5-10 day sessions of natural dyeing; another 2 weeks skeining the wool; 7 months to knit the blanket; one afternoon to machine wash and “full” (shrinking process to make it more durable); 5 minute photo shoot; priceless.

Someone was asking me about free form crochet the other day.  I just stumbled on this site - Knot Just Knitting — where you can find out more about Prudence Mapstone, a free form crochet and knitting fibre artist. She made this bit of amazing!  Click the link for lots more info on free form crochet.

Super Soft Merino Crib Blanket - a super easy (even for newbies) knitting pattern from the Purl Bee.  Love the colour mix — and that yarn porn!  Nice.
