31stof March! just in time…. You probably have already seen some previews on my  Instagram.

ONE BLANKET FOR EACH MONTH….

I have been thinking in the past few weeks what I should make this year, and I have come up with a rather ambitious plan: one blanket for each month of the year. I know it might be far too much, and I won’t be able to keep it up, but I still thought I...
