Girl Colors and A Boy Blanket

WOW - thank you so much for all the feedback on what coloway I should pick for my just-in-case-it's-a-girl' blanket! It came down to either Option #3 or Option #4 for me. It was a hard one but I decided to go with Option #3. I think there will be no going wrong with these colors!


Before I start the girl blanket I'm going to try and finish the 'just-in-case-it's-a-boy' blanket that I started. The blanket I went with for the boy pick is the Maude Honeycomb Blanket by Kristen Rengren out of the Vintage Baby Knits book.


Here's a close up shot of my progress. I love the retro feel of this pattern. It's also a surprisingly simple knit. The cool blue and dark gray look great together, don't you think?

I didn't "vote" but option 3 was my fav, too. And, um, yes please on the gray/blue combo in the honeycomb blanket! BEAUTIFUL.

The blanket is just gorgeous. I'm curious, what does the back look like? Are you carrying the yarn across the back? Could you please post a picture of how that looks?

What I find kind of funny about this is that I am knitting the exact same blankets for my baby that's due in December - and we aren't finding out the sex either! Happy knitting!

I love that color combo! I would use that blanket for a girl, too, but I tend to like non-girly colors. Just to spite me, M keeps asking for pink things. LOL!
