Boys

Boys are a subject I have little knowledge of - having given birth to 3 girls, and raised 5 girls - the only boys I had contact with are those of my friends, and my nephew who is bright, thoughtful and so bouncy he would make Tigger tired!

Now that we know that Maria's baby is almost certainly going to be a boy, I have invested more time in thinking about designing for boys - I know from talking to Mums of boys that their tastes (in general!!!) tend more to the conservative, that society conforms boys just as it does girls.
I'm all for flouting conformity, but sometimes a little guy just needs a warm sweater to throw on - so here we go:

sweater one:
loving the rib pattern (it's my favourite) loving the funnel neck big time, not loving the stocking stitch on the edges of the raglans, not sure what to do here as the rib makes things messy...will keep trying.
I have a few more ideas on the same theme, let's see where they take me!
Here's a gratuitous photo of Frasier - he is my favourite boy, I haven't included Flash because he's a man not a boy (there is a difference)

I LOVE your sweater!!! I think I have ore pregnant friends right now than non-pregnant ones...and most of them are due with boys!! This sweater is the perfect response to all of the frilly, lacey patterns out there for baby girls!!

love the sweater! I'm in agreement - there is something strange about the stocking stitch on sleeve edge, would garter stitch work better maybe?
love from granny
