KnitPicks Chroma Yarn

Because of the long color changes and gorgeous combinations, KnitPicks Chroma has always held a place in my heart. I also love the texture of this yarn and how it has a “freshly spun” quality. 

Eye candy: Lace hexagon blanket made with discontinued colors

Browse my Vibrant Vintage blankets on BabyLoveBrand.net (my portfolio site) – No. 3 and 5 are the gorgeous hexie blankets seen in this post.

Just look at this color range, which not only includes a myriad of palettes, but also features a few neutrals for mixing in or making motifs with a solid background.
