Oh!  I'm in!  I'm on a baby blanket making binge and I want to keep my energy up for it! (I've got LOTS of them to make)

Right now I'm making what could possibly be the ugliest baby blanket ever... I'll post a pic of it when I get home. ^_^

I'm having the same issue with the "no girly blankets" thing.  Yours is coming along nicely!

Mine, on the other hand, has got to be one of the ugliest baby blankets I've ever seen; the sad part is, it's starting to grow on me. lol

Here is it in all its half-finished glory:

Not the best lighting, but you can see the pattern the variegated yarn is making


Here's a close up, it's closer to the actual colours:


In reality, that green looks like it should glow in the dark!  Soooo neon!

That's a good question!  I have no idea.  I figured I'd go until it was square and see if it was big enough.

I'm doing it two-stranded and I'm using one strand of Bernat Baby Coordinates "Blue Bon Bon", and one strand of Bernat Baby Coordinates Sweet Stripes "Splash Stripes".

The Splash Stripes is responsible for that crazy green colour.
