I've been working on this for about 2 weeks and thought it was time for a post. Here is my blanket so far:
I switched to Caron Simply Soft Brites because of Oiyi's blanket, and I love it! I'm using all 9 colors (Watermelon, Papaya, Mango, Lemonade, Limeade, Blue Mint, Berry Mint, Grape, Rose Violet) and a size H/8 (5mm) hook in the soft waves ripple pattern. I decided to go randomly, but haven't really gotten far enough to see the randomness.
More ramblings can be found here.
