Hi, folks. Opinions, please?
I've started a baby blanket for a little girl. I think her mum will like colors that are not traditional "baby" pastels. The pattern is essentially a modified giant granny square, written for Bernat Baby Blanket. I'm making it in Homespun, and so far it looks like this. (Ignore the light blue--that's a different throw.) https://www.dropbox.com/s/l1tt7t6762mbbbb/FB_IMG_1453005295211.jpg?dl=0
I like the way it's coming along. A friend suggested today, though, that Homespun isn't soft enough for a small baby and I should switch to the Bernat. If I do, it'll be the pink/purple blend called "Pretty Girl," which is nice but not really what I was going for.
What do you think about Homespun for a baby blanket, in terms of softness and care? (I know not everyone finds it easy to work with, but no worries about that.)
Do you like Bernat (Baby) Blanket? I've only used it for cat mats so far. They like it, though. ;-)
Any thoughts on this color choice vs typical baby colors?
Thanks in advance! I'm stuck and appreciate your help.
