Make Waves Bulky Blanket
Art can be a very personal thing. People feel quite attached to certain styles, and if you're a fan of impressionism, then you'll love this Make Waves Bulky Blanket. This gorgeously colored blanket is made from beautiful colors that, when woven together, create stunning, subtle waves. In fact, the colorful waves manage to represent an almost abstract version of Claude Monet's water lily series — as close as a crochet blanket can do that, anyway. If you love the calm, soothing tones and hazy depictions of the Impressionist movement, then this is the blanket for you.
