Thank God It's Saturday!

And thank goodness I am off work for a three days!  This week has been brutal! 

So...guess what I've been doing?????


You got it!!!!  My hook has been busy making little squares for this baby binky, for a little boy.  And I am loving the way the colors are coming together!

I decided no "traditional baby blue" in this blanket.  I find it hard to work with, I totally use my interest.  I picked out shades of denim-y blue and pale green, and popped some soft yellows, of course always a white, and some red in the center of the square.  I think most of the time a blanket needs a light contrast in it, either a cream color, white or pale yellow.  It makes them come to life!

I will no doubt have this done this weekend, and then I will be starting on another!  I am thinking it will be a lot like this one, but maybe slightly different. 

Here is a close up of the squares if interested.

I think the blue and green border is really setting it off.  I am using "I Love This Yarn" from Hobby Lobby, and some TLC Essentials Multi from A.C. Moore (that i the red and the light peachy variegated yarn in the blanket). 

I know doubt will be back with some more pictures this weekend!!!

Very beautiful. I like how you chose the colours to avoid a typical boy blue blanket.
