My brother in law and his wife have just announced that they are expecting their first baby! :cheering:
Now, on to the important part...what to knit for the baby?
My other sister in law (married to hubby's OTHER brother) also knits, but knits basically scarves...so I am thinking she will want to make a baby blanket. Since she is entirely competitive, I don't want to make a blanket (because she will always compare the two, since she lives in the same state, she will know which blanket is used more often and will always bring it up).
I am thinking baby sweater(s) and MAYBE booties. But in what colors? They aren't planning on finding out the sex...so it needs to be good for boy or girl. I HATE the usual pastel baby colored yarn...pastel greens and yellows and purples don't work. I don't think the parents would be fond either. The daddy wears a lot of browns, oranges and greens. Mommy wears a lot of purple, black and red.
What colors? I wanted to make a black sweater, but hubby thinks that is too punk. :shrug:
