I picked up my blanket WIP again this weekend! I needed something completely mindless while I watched the finals of the Australian Open, and knitting on my sock was hurting hand. So I pulled out the blanket and decided to switch out the needles. I’d been using my Knitter’s Pride Spectra Acrylic tips, but they didn’t slide well against the cotton yarn. I put on my Knitter’s Pride Nova tips instead (nope, not getting paid for this, they’re just my favorite needles) and discovered it was indeed speedier knitting! I know there might be a difference in gauge, but it’s worth it if it means I can finish the blanket sooner. I really do want to see the finished project! It’s going to be quite large, I believe.
Now, I have a question: I will be needing a special baby gift this year, and I think this blanket would be a lovely option…but I don’t know the sex of the baby yet. Think this is unisex enough?
Oh yes, blue is ok for a girl and there is not too much pink for a boy. Just lovely.
It is nice and bold while still not too heavy on colors for either a boy or girl. Someone will enjoy hours of warm cuddles in it.
I hope so!
I think so. Multi color is a great way to make it gender neutral. Besides who says a boy can’t have a little pink in his life 😉
