This is one I have been working on pretty much since we found out baby #3 was on its way. I chose the colors to be neutral but now moving onto "gender" specific colors for the next 2 I have in the works.

This is a pattern I adapted from the Country Cousins Blanket - in the Lion BrandŽ HomespunŽ (http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/60160A.html?noImages=0/)

I used only 2 colors (Spring Green and Deco) and I only CO 24 instead of 32 like the pattern calls for.

I made 6 12" squares of each color then sewed them TOG with the green and sorta did it in a way so a NOT to see the stitch (as opposed to the pattern where you do)

I am pretty darn proud of it. Its the largest project I have made other then a one yarn lap throw I made for my G-ma.
