I have a friend that pretty much only likes neutral colors–no reds, blues, purples, etc. She’s expecting a baby, and I already know that I have to make a neutral-colored baby blanket or she probably won’t use it. :teehee: Now here’s my other question. She’s quite a sharp dresser; she and her husband are both European and have sophisticated tastes, so I didn’t want to knit the same kind of blanket that I might knit for somebody else (mainly, not something lacy or delicate) because I didn’t think she’d like it; plus, it appears that they will be having a boy.
Would a blanket with some cables and seed stitch be too “grown up” for the baby? Would this be something that might be suitable for their tastes, or is there something else that might be more of a good match?
