It's a girlie!
I just found out that I'll be having a girl in October, which is great news, but I was sorta hoping for a boy. All the blueish stuff I've started to knit in an effort to convince bub to be a boy is gonna have to be overdyed with red to make them purplish colours! But oh well! I can't be too disappointed, everything looks great on the scan, so at this stage she's looking healthy which is all one could hope for really!

DD is thrilled she's getting a sister though and at least i won't have to buy new clothes for the little one.

Just wanted to update everyone is all...

Congratulations! I have a sister, and it's just the two of us. I can't imagine having had a brother (although I do have a son, and I absolutely adore him).

Girls are more fun to knit for.

No reason girls can't wear blue. It's easy to "girl up" a blue sweater with cute buttons or bows. I'm making a baby blue girly sweater right now.

Congratulations! You could always add some felted or knitted (or crocheted) flowers to your blue knits, or maybe some duplicate stitching with flowers to add some girly touches to them!

dakatzmeow, that is so cute!
