Warm Blankies

It's still freezing here and so the idea of a warm blanket is extra appealing (and actual warm blankets are being used constantly).  I just realized that there is a new baby coming into our family...very soon (I haven't been on A game lately).  My usual welcome to the world gift includes a blanket, so I need to get moving!  So...who wants to help me pick a pattern?

I have a ton of baby yarn in a pale but bright-toned blue (it's the blue in this blanket), so the idea of an all blue or mostly blue blanket is appealing to me right about now.  Here are some patterns I'm tossing around...

Bobble Baby Blanket (all in blue)

Star Blanket (but with wide blue stripes and a much thinner stripe of a contrasting color)

Simple Stripe Blanket (not sure what colors and I think the bright might not look as cool with this one)

Starburst Baby Blanket (all blue with a grey? border)

So, any thoughts?  Please help me out here...I need to get hooking!

A NEW DEVELOPMENT: I found photos of the blankets I made for the new baby's older brothers.  Does this change your opinion at all?

I love reading your blog!(Frequently, I show Kyle photos of your kids)

I'm also always jealous of the craft projects you post! I think my favorite blanket is the bobble baby blanket. It's just so cute! If you recreate the same blanket for the youngest, you'll be less motivated to get it done. At least, I would be!

For the record, I think there should be more voting on your upcoming craft projects! Haha

Nice roundup of warm crochet blankets. I recently did a post over on Lion Brand about crafting through cabin fever and one of the things I suggested was crocheting something warm. It helps! I think whatever you make will be excellent!
