in August when I had time on my hands while visiting family and friends.
Text to a colleague whose wife was expecting a baby: Baby quilt or baby blanket?
To me: Thank you! Baby blanket!
To colleague: Neutral baby colors or is there something that you have to share?
To me: The baby is a girl!
Ok, so to me that meant that I could bring on the pink – that he would need to embrace pink. Now, before I get comments about gender stereotyping, I should say that I really like pink and that my fav color is purple and that I am not a yellow or pale green person. I did make this yellow baby blanket for my nephew’s baby, but I did not know the gender ahead of time and always want to be sure that what I give is going to be well received by the giftee. Some families would not use a pink blanket for a baby boy, or a blue one for a baby girl. I want what I make to be used and loved. Soooo, I liked this yarn because it was not so babyish. I had six skeins and now I have these two and this… All I have left to knit are seven more squares and a border, but the baby was due yesterday…better keep knitting!
