Dh asked me last night why I haven't chrocheted our bed a blanket. I have no idea why I haven't lol. So I want to start. I want to make it for dh but idk what color to make it and he didn't know what color he wanted. His favorite color is black but I don't want an all black blanket.
A little about him: he'll be 29 in Dec, he was in the navy he's very protective, and antisocial.

Also I'm pretty sure I want to do the line stitch and not a granny square so that way its heavier.
I was thinking blue and gold (navy colors) but I don't know if the blue should be dark or light and how/if I should add black.

How about a black an blue veriegated yarn? Or black and blue patterned? You could even go with a brighter blue to balance out all the black!

That's a good idea. I just looked up the navy colors and it says blue and gold. Do you think that with black would look okay? I dunno if its dark or light blue.

That's what I thought. I think I'll do navy blue and gold, tell him its for a friend and give it to him for Christmas. Sound good or tacky?

It's hard to make something for a loved one that lives with us. lol I think it sounds good. =) Do you know any of his friends so they can play along maybe?

No, he doesn't talk to many people. I was thinking about telling him I'm making it for my mother.

I just picked up gold and dark blue because I wasn't sure if I have black or not. I'm thinking 4-5 lines of dark blue then 4-5 of gold than one black line. Repeat.
