Just a quick yarn color question. I'm making a simple garter stitch stroller blanket for my daughter who's having a baby boy. I haven't seen her stroller, but she says it's predominately navy blue with khaki trim. She's going to use brown and that popular blue color in the nursery. Would you make the blanket cream color or yellow? I'm afraid the yellow will clash with the khaki. I've looked at a Berrocco color called Barley--it's a very pale tan as opposed to the cream, but I'm afraid it will clash too. Hope you'll give me an opinion soon so I can cast on and get going--I seem to be really indecisive lately and NEED to knit to calm me down.

Personally, I think cream would like very nice.

No yellow. I'd go with cream and if you want a color accent go with navy.

Can you get the stroller name from her? You can always Google it and see if you can find a picture online. That may help when making a decision on colors. I'd go with the light brown rather than cream since it's a baby thing and you don't want it looking yucky. That's just me...

I agree with Kelly. The light tan might look cleaner longer. You could also do both the tan and cream striped.

I thought about dirt and the cream color, but since it's on top of the baby in a stroller I thought it might be less of an issue since they aren't wrapped in it or laying on it. Tan would be good too though.
