Finished Cloud Nine and I think it looks fantastic:
I used Bernat Handicrafter in Meadow and Bernat Cottentot in Sweet Green.
I was going to use the Handicrafter with a white or ecru, but when I went to Michael's, I couldn't find any worsted weight solid cotton except for Cottontot and wasn't sure about the wavy yarn. So I didn't get any and instead checked my trunk when I got home. What a pleasant surprise to find that I already had several skeins of Cottontot that were a perfect match.
I will be donating the blanket to Adopt A Pet in Fenton, Michigan.
