One of my oldest friends is having a baby at the end of April, so - of course - I had to make her a baby blanket!
They haven't found out the gender of the baby - so I had the challenge of picking gender-neutral colours. Whether any colour should be gender specific is a whole other topic of conversation. Whether is should be blue for a boy, pink for a girl... that's opening a can of worms I don't feel like opening right now!
Regardless of this, my friend isn't really a pastels and pink kind of girl, so even if she is having a girl and had found that out, I wouldn't have gone for pinks anyway.
Therefore I have picked what I hope to be modern bold colours that would work for a boy or a girl, and that I think would fit my friend's preferences.
I've bought Stylecraft Special DK in Turquoise, Grey, Sunshine and White and am planning a stripy blanket with a border I am yet to decide on.
I generally take forever to finish anything, and I've started this fairly late... so I'd better get a move on! I will be sure to show you my progress...
