    Default Knit/Crochet Blanket?

    I am looking to have a blanket made for DS's new bed.
    Any Mama's up to it?
    I'm thinking lime green, grey, white - but open to suggestions. I can send a picture of his new bedding which it doesn't need to 'match' just coordinate?

    Let me know!

    I'd love to! I only really know one crochet pattern but I've successfully made the blanket that's on my sofa all the time (have done that a few times for friends and family). If you're not too picky on the style I'd love to

    I am the very definition of NOT picky
    I am not crafty AT ALL, so I appreciate Mama's with the skills! As long as it can hold up to being washed quite frequently, everything else is icing on the cake!

    I'm thinking like a normal blanket size for his twin bed (not baby blanket) I don't think he'll give up his HOT pink crocheted blanket that he stole from DD

    Just let me know how much and if you need anything from me? Thanks so much!

    Let me scope out prices on the proper yarn and I'll let you know. It'll take a few balls of it for sure...and may not be done for at least a few weeks since it is labour intensive...but I enjoy doing it while watching tv after the kids are in bed. It's relaxing...and so rewarding when it's for someone else.

    Sure!
    I will take pictures when his room is put together tomorrow/Friday. No big rush - I just think he would love a full sized blanket to twirl his fingers in and wrap his snuggles up in. Thanks again!
