Momma Sez...

I had a head-->desk moment when I realized that I should have asked the mother-to-be what she wanted with regard to stitch lines or no stitch lines. She agrees with the majority of your comments: no color block delineation, if you please. And so it is. The blanket looks much better in real life, but hopefully you get the idea:

Moderne Blanket - in progress
This is a shot of the unblocked crochet version of the Moderne Baby Blanket in progress. I tried to correct the colors, though you still don't quite get the lovely, muted flavor of this Mission Falls 1824 Cotton palette.

What you see above is the nearly complete center piece of the blanket or approximately 18 x 20 inches of single crochet. The finished blanket should measure about 30 x 38 when all is said and done. This should not pose a problem because I've barely put a dent in my stash of this cotton. Goody for me since I want a throw for myself at some point!

Love the color combination! I swear, 1824 cotton comes in the most beautiful and subtle palette.

I don't look for a second, and now you've got a blanket! It's lovely, and I like that it's corchet. I would have liked the delineation between the color blocks as well. Do you really think crochet is faster than knitting?

Oh that's a thing of gorgeousness. My friend is expecting and I haven't yet decided on what to do for her. This is a great idea!
