Work on a baby blanket

RickMartin's picture

Well it's started. I decided if I posted what I've gotten done here I might actually be more motivated to finish it. I don't have a particular baby in mind, but it seems like I'm at an age where my kids' friends are having babies and I get word from then that so-and-so is having a baby next week. So, it's great to have something on hand and ready to go.

The picture shows some of the color being black. That is actually a really deep purple. Somehow I was never able to get that color adjusted.

Lucky baby! Like the colors

Lucky baby! Like the colors and the pulsating design. I'll have to get my nephews busy making babies so I can think about making baby blankets. My afghans seem to be getting bigger and bigger. Something smaller would be fun for a change.

This is one cool baby

This is one cool baby blanket and I completely agree with Scott about the developmental factor of the pattern/color. Not to mention it's purple so it instantly has my vote. _____________________________

With all the information we

With all the information we have on how stimulating bright colors are for babies I don't get why people are still surrrounding them with pink, pale blue and light yellow. Now purple is a stimulaing color and an infant will have a great time focusing on that pattern. I can just see his/her eye crossing and uncrossing trying to focus. So, not only will the lucky recepient baby stay warm but it will also improve his/her eye site. How much is left to do?
