Thank you so much for all the posts everyone! I guess I had pastel coloured tunnel vision! This may be a result of the nesting phase I seem to be heading into, combined with my mental fuzziness!
I really loved some of the ideas you all pitched and think I probably will go the bright n’ brilliant colour ways! I am thinking of the dreary late autumn and winter days, could use some bright colours. Perhaps with a few quick and easily re-giftable other gender specific items in pink or blue. I just have to knit something in pink or blue
First I might try to knit a baby hockey jersey 'cause we are Leafs fans and that would be too cute. Let me know if anyone has a pattern or chart for that
I think a black & white baby blanket would look really cool, especially if done in a geometric pattern or wave stripe.
And cftwo you were right… this baby will need a wee little Christmas sweater. Possibly with matching leggings… oooh stripy elf-baby leggings.
and for the rest… I guess I could knit items in colours that both me and my husband look good in… it’s bound to look like one of us!
Keep on pumping your ideas! I can use them
