I think that knitting them and giving them away is a wonderful, thoughtful idea. Not only that but I'm terribly superstitious about some things - And one of them is that it's bad luck to knit things for children you don't have yet. You may not be as silly as me, but I still think that donating them so that they get loved and used is still a wonderful idea.
I'm a boy, by the way.
