Blush Blossom Blanket in Muted Colors-WIP

I just simply can't stop crocheting with the springtime colors!

I have been obsessing over and chomping at the bit to try out the new Stylecraft Special DK yarn colors.

So a "Blush Blossom Blanket in Muted Colors"
 was just the ticket to cover both obsessions.

At this juncture, I have included two of the new yarn colors:
Toy and Powder Pink
(Watch out Spearmint and Cornish Blue...I have future plans for you too!)
And for once I don't have the urge to saturate with white; however, 
cream may sneak its way into this project.
This blanket is based on the Blush Blossom Baby Blanket Pattern,
found in my Etsy Shop by clicking here.
The only changes are the yarn the colors. 
Everything else will remain the same.

The blossoms are crocheted from my Stylecraft Special DK and Scheepjes Colour Crafter yarn stash.
I picked colors not too bright or dark.
Additionally, I chose flower colors that might be found in nature. 
I like the granny square as a diamond and I really like that there are only 24 of these blossom squares (diamonds) to crochet.
(Please note the pattern includes a plethora of step-by-step photos, as well as, video links for additional assistance.)

The rest of the blanket is comprised of basic granny squares and half granny squares (triangles).

The MC's (Main Colors) are:
Cloud Blue
Powder Pink
Duck Egg

The leaves are:

At this point, the border may include Cream, Spearmint, and Cornish Blue....we'll see...
I am making every effort to limit the yarn to no more than one skein of each color.

Stay tuned for the continuing colorways,

 and as always wishing you lots of colorful and
