I considred blankets. I put that aside. Too big. I considered baby socks. I put that aside. Too small. She received a bunch of sweaters from her great gran, my knitting hero. No need for more of those. I put that aside too. Not a whole lot left but hats and I am not in the mood for hats.
sigh. It is a very tough decision. Maybe a dress? One of those cute little things styled more like a little jumper dress. If it is knit right, it would be year round wear, important when you don't know how big she will be in what season. It should be cotton, or at least a blend of cotton or a plant fibre. No point in knitting an all season thing if it is made in wool, which is just too warm for summer.
And it has to be pink, soft baby girly pink, by request of her mommy.
In all my many many, many balls of yarn, I have no such pink. I have eye sucking pink. I have sherbet multis. I have soft creams and sweet little neutrals. I have bright cheery baby blues, greens, yellows, turquoises, but no soft pink.
So I must go to town to buy new yarn. I sense danger.
