So this is not anything super exciting or creative, but I did like the way it turned out.  This blanket was made for a friend's baby ( I was only four months late in getting it to her).
I wanted to do blue, but not too much baby blue.  I ended up liking the colors a lot.
I used Caron simply soft, and a cluster pattern...it was very heavy when it was finished so I knew it would be warm.  She lives 'up north' so it gets pretty cold.

 

And this is how I sent it to her...now I know this isn't a new idea but I didn't have ribbon and in about 2 minutes I had a great way to tie it up!!!

I love the colors!

I know that when I have babies, I plan on staying away from the light blue and light pink... there's only so much of it I can handle. So this is very refreshing.

"Well, um, actually a pretty nice little Saturday, we're going to go to Home Depot. Yeah, buy some wallpaper, maybe get some flooring, stuff like that. Maybe Bed, Bath, & Beyond, I don't know, I don't know if we'll have enough time."
