    The colour gradients are lush. I like the dark-light-dark best.

    It’s so beautiful already! I loved reading/seeing the process, It’s always interesting to see someone’s design process. This blanket is going to be gorgeous.

    Absolutely gorgeous!!! I would love to hand tie yarn but in the meantime I’m loving the colours of yours. {swoon} :)

    I cannot wait to see the finished project! Your lace motif is modern and the rainbow effect really makes it pop. I am already calculating how long I can wait before I start this in order to have it done before my cousin’s baby arrives… (I’m such a nerd.)
