A new blanket

There is a new baby due to a very good friend any day now. I thought it was time to get cracking on their blanket....

I don't know if it is a boy or a girl, but I think a multicoloured Baby Cashmerino blanket should fit the bill don't you? Here is the first row of Willow squares from 200 Crochet Blocks. I am picking the colours out of the bag at random. I think I've done fairly well so far.
P.s. Thank for all of the comments on my sock yarn mountain. If you want to guess how many pairs of socks I can make from this little lot then you could win a skein of your choice. I'll be picking a winner on Wednesday evening at 9.30pm (ish).

I really really love those blocks! I have learnt a little crochet but nothing quite so complicated as that!!! I think it will be beautiful.
