Pink sweater...boy baby
The kid had better be comfortable with his feminine side! I made a pink kimono from Interweave Knits for my friend who was supposed to have a girl.

I have a blue one started for another friend who is due in January, but I'm thinking I might just give this new baby a gift certificate.

I'm going to see if my LYS wants to display the pink one.

I think the parents were probably more surprised than you were! :rofling:

Hah! The mom said that my reaction was almost the same as hers--happiness mingled with disbelief! :rofling: He's a fabulous, healthy baby. And it's good that he's a boy, 'cause the mom says that he's the last. They already have two girls.

The friend I started the blue one for has had a rough pregnancy with a number of ultrasounds, so that one will definitely need a blue sweater. Whew!

Oh no! Personally I think I would tell the mother that I had knitted a kimono in pink since it was expected to be a girl and see what she says. I don't think I'd put pink on a little boy, but it may not bother everyone. Maybe you could make her something else, but tell her it'll have to wait till after holidays?

I'd definitely put pink on a boy - my son, who's now a teen, wore all sorts of colors as a wee lad...but then again, I'm an odd one!

Hey, didn't you know that pink is all the rage with the boys my age these days?

I guess because people are always asking if it's a boy or a girl and putting pink on an infant would make them think "girl" automatically. Less explaining to do about it being a boy and yes, you are happy with a boy, etc.

I don't have any issues with boys/men wearing pink polos or whatever if they like. My husband has a hot pink polo (about the color of this background around the forum stuff actually) and it doesn't bother me. My daughters played with trucks and dug in the dirt, my nephews had dolls. I'm all for raising boys and girls alike.

My first date w/my husband was our senior ball, way back in 1975. The dress I made myself was a baby pink....when he asked what color tux to order, I gave him a list of colors, maroon, black, white, pink....PINK!!! says he....guess what he showed up in?

Yep, a pink tux jacket w/the black pants and cumberbund...boy did he look sharp! Of course, the best man at our wedding wasn't too happy about his.....

pat.....still waiting patiently for November 26 and her Cat Bordhi class!
