...pink or blue...

...that is the question. As some of you know by now (because I keep saying it over and over and over.....) we will be welcoming a new member into our family in September. Our oldest daughter and her husband are expecting! Yes, our first grandchild is due September 13th and we could not be more happy!

This child is a first to many.....first child to our daughter and son-in-law, first grandchild to us, first niece or nephew to Auntie Kate, and first great grandchild to my Dad. Needless to say, we are all very excited! Especially Kate and Great Grandpa who have September birthdays close to the due date, Kate on the 16th and Great Grandpa on the 14th. We shall see when this little one will chose to make an appearance.

Now, on to the pink or blue part. I have asked our daughter if they are going to find out whether it's a boy or girl. Her response was something like, "Mom, we just found out we're having a baby.....let's get down the road a ways and we'll see....." This does not make it easy to shop or knit. But we will respect their wishes and try not to bug them too much regarding the sex of said grandchild. (notice I said try....)

No photos in this post, but get ready to be inundated with photos of baby knitted stuff. And I guess until they find out whether it's a boy or a girl I'll just have to buy and/or knit both pink and blue. I just can't help myself.

    Congrats Debbie, how exciting to have your first grandbaby :0) I like blue - girls can pair it with denim (dresses or pants) and of course, boys can wear it with anything in their wardrobe :0)
    Can't wait to see what you knit

    Congratulations! My oldest was a first for many too. I can tell you that child will be well loved!

    Green is good. And I bet she'd appreciate a nice neutral sweater. It's hard to keep baby's from looking like disco balls with all the colors their clothes come in.

    Baby knitting is so much fun!! Blue is always good,but green and red are always good "neutral" colors.
    Congrats! and September will be here in no time, better start knitting.

    May I suggest something in Blue Moon Fiber Arts' Pride colorway? It is my favorite unisex baby/child colorway.
    Congratulations on your upcoming grandparenthood.

    Primary colors are always a winner. Bright and cheery and hide the grime better than pastels. Mix it up!
