I trully appreciate the help that I am receiving from a few posters. You people are the best at reaching out and helping. The baby is a boy, their third.
I failed to mention in my first post that I need the CSS acrylic yarn. I can use all colors. I plan to use mostly medium, bright, dark, and dark bright colors with a few lights placed here and there for a multi-colored blanket that will catch and hold a babies attention. Hopefully it will become his favorite.
