I Need an Opinion . . .
Do you think the February baby sweater from Elizabeth Zimmerman's Knitter's Almanac is gender neutral? (See one example here.) I'm a little unsure because of the lace pattern. I want to make something nice for a new niece or nephew due in the Spring, but since the parents-to-be have chosen to be surprised about the baby's sex, I'm not sure what to make. I know I could always do just stockinette instead of the lace pattern, but that seems a bit dull. Has anyone put a baby boy in this sweater? Do you think it works as a gender neutral garment if knit in white or cream (or maybe grey or navy)?
