mint lemonade, anyone?

 

it’s safe to say that we’ve been obsessed with this season’s mint and lemonade color combinations.  it’s been popping up everywhere, and we’re SMITTEN!  so much so, that for the last few days, we put all other projects on hold, picked up our needles, and started to knit a mint lemonade blanket in moo cotton that baby can use in warmer weather.

update 5/2: here’s the photo of the baby, taking the blanket for a test drive . . . he decided to wrap himself up in it like a spring roll

here’s what we did . . . . so quick & simple, it almost doesn’t need an explanation!

  1. I am loving the mint and lemonade combination. In fact I have seen it around a lot too. This baby blanket is looking lovely and I am sure would keep your little one rather snug too!
