I know that black & white are usually used as the neutral colour, but I'm drawn to tan, brown, beige. I find it more subtle, I just love it! I use these colours as a background in some of my scrapbooking as well. It's the colour I tend to reach for first.
I'm so happy with how the blanket is coming along, it's an enjoyment to make. With such a great & easy pattern the blanket is building up rather quickly & at times I find it hard to put down!
