Blues and Greens

It ended up being a not posting sort of day.  And not for want of trying.  My work phone is ringing off and on all night long for the last couple nights and I can't sleep.  I think the summer drunks and partiers are trying to call cabs and are getting me instead.  2 o'clock, 4 oclock, one o'clock, Three.  Pick a time and it is going off.  Tonight, I leave it at the office and I don't care what my boss says.

I had fun last night.  My daughter in law is very pregnant and is due at the beginning of September and she has decided that it is time to make a blanket for the new little one.    

She wants colours of water and ocean, something of the sea she thought or beaches but not sand.  I dug out my favourite colours and I think we are good to go.  

I love this combination of turquoise blue and bright green. (the green is much brighter than shown here)  It is just the most striking thing and it makes my heart sing.  

Sadly, I only have 6 balls of the combination of blue and green in my stash.  But I had a couple of these too.
They are a sturdier sort of green, darker, richer, and the blues are deeper and more the colours in the depths of a turquoise sea, but I think it will look great together.  Momma does too.

2 balls at 429 metres of the Crazy Zauberballe plus 6 times 165 metres is  about 1800 metres of yarn.  Just right for a nice baby blanket!  Grandma's stash is ready to be put to work for her sweet new little one.  I can't wait!

Good to go.

I always find that bright green colour hard to photograph - they seem to want to appear more dull than in real life!

I once knew a woman with piercing blue eyes and she knew to wear that bright green when she really wanted to make an impression. Love that combination!
