Baby Sweater for my Brother

My brother and his wife are having a kid in June...well maybe July, I am not quite sure. This is their first, and they are freaking out. Here is the first of the many things I will be making for them. I hate the yarn, I hate the buttons, and I hate the color, but the women that I have shown it to think it is adorable.

Pattern: Baby Placket Pullover
Yarn: Cotton Kisses by Plymouth Yarn

That colorway isn't the greatest. My LYS has it in shades of yellow and purple that works much better. Can't say I care for the buttons much, myself. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

I saw it in blue and really liked it, there was even a cream/brown that I liked...but my LYS didn't have the cream, and we dont know the gender yet so they will not let me make it in blue.

Sounds like you went with the best color you could. I imagine they wouldn't go for yellow/purple if they didn't want a blue one. Some nice knitting, regardless. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Rule of thumb - when gender is not know, use military camo. It's gender neutral!

Lol, I was told very specifically that camo was not an allowed color combination. They do not want a repeat of my oldest niece that came home from the hospital in all camo baby clothing.
