Three Color Baby Blanket Pattern

Oh my gosh you guys, I am so excited! I just found out one of my oldest friends is expecting her second baby! She already has a gorgeous little girl that I love so much! This time she is having a boy! When she had her daughter I made a blanket for her crib, so I knew I wanted to do the same thing for her son!

Her husband is in the military, so I wanted to choose colors that tied into that. I thought tan, navy, and green would look very nice together. I chose to use Soft Taupe, Soft Navy, and Forest.

Color Inspiration for Summer

Summer is definitely in full swing here in Tennessee! It’s been crazy hot and humid lately! Once it’s over 90 degrees I want to be near a pool and that is all! We got a bit of a break today with some pop up rain showers, which has helped cool it off considerably.

Feeling the heat did give me a bit of inspiration, though! I realized that there are some great color combinations that you can get from “summery” things! I wanted to share with you a few of the photos that have inspired me to create a few summertime color palettes.

Below each photo I have linked the closest yarn color I could find to match these photos. I hope they inspire you to create something wonderful!


These sea shells truly show all the amazing colors you can find near the ocean! I think this color pattern would be fun for a summery project!
