In the process of making a Hunger Games blanket . . .

I've been contemplating making this damn blanket for the part year and a half. It's a make-a-square blanket with each square representing each individual District (most of the charts I used can be found here -> Shywalker but the rest I improvised) but I'm really really bad at picking colours (almost as bad as I am at picking names for my stories) so I've put it off

Also, I knew that if I decided to make this blanket, I was going to have to shell out at least $25 for yarn because I didn't have any mass-quantities of any one colour.

I ended up just saying "screw it" and starting with whatever I had (which ended up being this really old glittery pink yarn that I have no idea where it came from and two balls of white bernat premium yarn)

I've finished Districts 1 thru 7 and just started on District 8 (which I'm really excited about because I get to use this cool purple colour)

I only have five squares left (including District 8 which I'm working on right now)

I used all of Shywalkers charts except for Districts 5, 6 and 9. 

I'll upload a completed picture as soon as it's complete!

Quick question: What colour do you think I should boarder the squares with?
