WIPS Wednesday (On Friday)

It's Friday - oops! I am a little late. But I wanted to share these cute Solid Granny Squares for my two newest baby blankets! I am using one of my favorite yarns - I Love This Cotton - since it is 100% cotton and soft!
I started with this blanket. 
When I went yarn shopping with my boyfriend, Chad, last week, we brainstormed how the blanket would look with the colors I was getting. He's the greatest for playing along - hehe!
It was decided that I'd do the blanket in two colors with the variegated color (Fantasy) as one of them. I then picked the Bright Teal as my other color with the Hot Orchid to join, so in turn the pink was really the focal of this blanket.
I made my squares 5.5" since I was only working with two colors.

As I was working up these squares, I thought that leaving off one round would make cuter squares for a baby blanket so...
On my second blanket, I went with 3.75" squares. 
Same pattern, minus a round.
Originally, I was also going to be working up this blanket in two colors (the Denims and Dark Denims colors), but I decided against it when I decided to go with the smaller squares so back to Hobby Lobby I went for the Pale Denims color. This blanket will be joined by Dove, a light gray color.

Thanks for stopping by :)

    1. 30" Square for each is the goal. Not sure why, but that measurement has been stuck in my head since I started making baby blankets.
