sonoma wrote:For the 2012 CAL I made a baby blanket using the first three clues. I used Bernat Softee Baby in Soft Lilac and Bernat Baby Coordinates in Soft Mauve for a monochromatic blanket. When it came to assembling it, I decided to use a braid stitch in white for a bit of contrast. As far as edging rounds, that has yet to be decided. Maybe white with a row of Soft Lilac in it.
Since I made two afghans in the 2010 CAL, there was no need to make a full-size afghan in this CAL. This shows one of my 2010 CAL afghans + pillow with the 2012 CAL baby blanket.

For my second, I have decided that I am going to borrow boyd121's layout design with an additional motif.
I went out this evening and bought a bright orange color. I also am going to use crochetfanatic's motif suggestion as my 4th motif. I am really liking the colors. My MC for this one is white.

I like the layout I just wish I had chosen colours that were more flower-like. Even though I have enough MC for the border, I might use my D colour instead. My favourite colour ended up being Greek Sea (the darker green); that would have been a nicer MC I think.
While Sir Spotacus didn't help with the crocheting or the blocking (I may have to try that next time Dour2005!), he certainly felt the need to inspect my work closely as soon as I laid it all out.

ambivalent wrote:Before I seam - input please! Which do you prefer?
1. The official CAL layout
2. Stripes! (The white clue #1 square would have to be replaced by a red one.)
My preference tends towards the stripes, but my husband seems to think that either would be good.
