This blanket seems so small after the crib size blankets I've been making, but this one really is newborn size.
I love these colors, and would even make an afghan for myself out of these colors and even this pattern. I started with just thinking I would do the smaller granny squares, and then decided to add the larger square with both colors. I think that really added to this blanket.
You would think with brown being such a popular color with babies now (pink and brown, blue and brown, green and brown, etc) that you would see a bigger selection of browns in the baby line of yarns. A softer yarn would have been the only thing I would have liked better with this blanket.
Have finally settled into an old farm house in Eastern Washington, I hope this is our last move! Now that I have my very own craft room and yarn all organized, I guess it's time to update and start posting again.....
