After seeing Kayster's I was inspired to make my own.  I researched it a bit and found that if you're not so good at changing colors, you can close with a knot and then start the new color from there.  I'll post pics of the blanket I did (similar to Kayster's in the brown and pink) for a friend's baby shower.  I just did what I wanted to do in one color, tied if off, cut the yarn, and started with the new one.  Once I had all my pieces, I sewed them together with a plastic knitting needle.

That's exactly what I did.

Haha I think I said I'd post this back in May, but the shower was last Sunday and it reminded me that I never posted mine!  Here it is... my first one!!
