I think on the whole I probably do too - I think it is prettier than the other (not keen on black on blankets but that is just me!) but either would look fab :thumbsup: :widesmile: (and just a bit jealous that you guys can start now!).

@JabberJabber are you any further thinking about your colours? Did you get to a yarn shop?

Colors aren't really like this, flashlight gives another color.
@clothmama it's not black but brown ;)
But I do think I like the circus theme ;)

:hohoho:
I spent a little while last night trying to read through the threads! :giggle:
So I m confused, I suppose I just need to pick one type of yarn and stick to it for all squares right? I have lots of DK wool. I do like cottons and have some of the drops cottons so maybe I ll start with those.

It's a cotton acrylic blend worsted weight, the blanket is going to be for my craft room when it's sorted (dh reckons it'll be sorted by June) so hopefully I'll be able to crochet some of it up there
