Today dear blog readers, I have a question to ask. I need some help here with a baby blanket that I'm planning on making. First, I don't know the mommy-to-be very well, so I'm not sure about her colour preferences, and she is not 100% sure what the gender of her baby is - although they are leaning toward it being a girl. So, this morning I was planning on making a colourful ripple blanket, very similar to the one that Lucy made: The Baby Ripple. Then, this afternoon I went to check out her registry online and found that she is doing the nursery in a "Forest Friends" theme that looks like THIS. Now, do you think I should try to find colours similar to this and make a blanket that will match in the nursery, or should I make the colourful one since it's different? (Also, I have to note that if the colourful one turned out to be too girly, and the baby is a boy, I have a blue, brown, and tan baby blanket already made that I was going to give instead.) Do you think that if I make one to match the nursery that it will just blend in with all the rest of the blankets she will already have that colour-coordinated? Or do you think if I make the colourful ripple it will clash horribly with the rest of her decor and she will never use it? I wanted to start looking for yarn tomorrow, but now I don't know what to do. Any help/advice would be much appreciated!!
Much Love, xx
