Another Blanket

Now, with my goal of knitting 13 miles of yarn this year, I have my eye and brain looking out for 'big' projects. Last night, as I was watching Psych and trying to finish up a sweater (it's not going to happen, at least not this weekend), I thought of a blanket pattern I stumbled upon a while ago.
Now this pattern led me to rant about something, something research related, but after letting it sit I think I'll leave it for now. I have come to accept that the person who wrote this pattern and the explanation for their inspiration for it is a knitter. Not a child development specialist with a degree in those kinds of things.

But here is my dilemma. I was going to make this in hot pink and black. But, I'm making the Great North American Afghan in pink and black and gray blue. I CAN'T make two pink and black blankets! So, those of you who actually read this blog, what colors should I go for in this Op Art Blanket? (No option on changing the GNAA, I started on it last night, there is no going back.) 

Let me know what you think so I can be on the lookout for the right colors of yarn :)

p.s. I decided to go to the local museum for my birthday. Uh, they're not open on Mondays, what? So maybe Franklin is where I'll end up...


  1. I really love yellow and gray! Or lighter blue and brown. Whatcha think?

  2. Both of those are good. I'd actually entertained the yellow and gray option... I'm still trying to track down some gray yarn that I like for some other things. Once I find some I'll have to buy it in bulk ;)
