Help! I need your opinion...Camouflage Star Blanket


I got an email from Lion Brand Yarn the other day and noticed this little star pattern (click HERE to check it out). I set out to try the star design and it turns out it's pretty much the same pattern as the Pink Star Baby Afghan I finished a few weeks ago.  Above you'll see how the star looks in Bernat Brand yarn in "Camouflage."  Yep, that's supposed to look like camouflage but I am not sure where in nature this yarn would "blend" in.  The photos above are a tad dark but the colors are pretty accurate.  I am undecided about how this yarn looks in this pattern and am soliciting your opinion.  What do you think? Should I keep going until I have a nice sized blanket for a boy perhaps?  Or should I "frog" it and try this yarn in a different pattern?

It gives some depth to the star, but not sure who it would camouflage either -- you'd think it would have been green, not blue. Perhaps if you were underwater or floating with the stars?

How unique! I think a little boy would 'feel like a star' with this blanket. I'm not fond of the color combination nor the camouflage effect, but like the pattern. Maryellen
