Crocheted Baby Blanket, Brown and Yellow

Was your initial thought on seeing the words "brown and yellow" along the lines of a very uncertain, "Okaaaaay." Sometimes I look at two bunches of yarn and while holding them side by side think, "That'll be so pretty!" only to later think, "Um, no."

So when I started this project I thought to myself, "I sure hope this turns out pretty." Know what? I think it did. I finished it just last night for my brand new niece who is supposedly on her way to being born right now!♥♥♥ I think she may have been waiting for me to finish her "Kiki" as her siblings have nicknamed these blankets.


I really had no idea what sort of border I would put on this one, and undid the stitches many a time before I found something I really found very pleasing to my eye. They sort of remind me of flowers or half-suns.

In any case, I'm SO hoping little Maddie will be so excited to tangle her fingers and toes in this blankie ♥

It reminds me of a bumble bee or honey comb. I like it!

Yeah, what Missy said, a bumble bee. It's really cute. I hate it when baby blankets are boring pastels. This is adorable :)
