WIP - "Barn Raising" baby blanket

This project is inspired by the "Barn Raising Quilt" project from http://knitalong.net/?page_id=35. I have about 3 1/2 more squares to go and then it's on to the next step.

Note the stand off happening between Kenneth (chihuahua) and Juan (kitty) in the background.

What a great idea, especially for the kettle-dyed/hand-dyed look of the yarns you're using.

I bet the Juan the kitty won...that's funny a Latino name for the cat and a very English name for the Mexican breed dog.

That is going to be one beautiful blanket. The colors are just gorgeous! Do the furkids usually get along?

Looks great. I love the vibrant colors. You've arranged them beautifully. Can't wait to see it assembled.

Great project. Reminds me of the "Mystery Afghan" from EZ's Knitter's Almanac. I've toyed with working one of them every time I reread that book. Sounds like a great way to use up all kinds of leftover yarns and/or disparate skeins. (Whether EZ's pattern or this one.) I'd say I plan on adding it to the list of future projects, but that list grew so fast I decided to save myself the headache and abandoned it. (Just like my list of "going to read" books.) Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

I love your blanket. For someone who likes short socks, it sounds like a wonderful way of using up bags of left overs. Thanks for sharing.

They look like psychedelic starfish! It should be a sumptuous blanket.
