Just something I whipped up this past week. A new blue vest for Frances. If you’re interested, here is where I found the pattern. I am trying to get away from the colour pink. It seems as though I went a little over board with the excitement of having a girl. Frances looks so delightful in blue as it brings out the blueberry in her eyes. I was never very partial to pink and think gender colours are silly. I love the fact that my six year old nephew wears a pink shirt. I guess it’s because his parents are so cool! When I worked in the yarn shop I heard some pretty ridiculous things about gender and colour. Did you know that boys should not wear red!? No, apparently red is a feminine colour!

Today Frances is eleven months old! She is growing into such a fun little girl. Woo, woo, woo (woof) she says all the time. Aouw, aouw is the sound a kiy (kitty) makes. She says hi, ma ma, da da and na na. Ging, ging is another word she uses a lot but we haven’t figured out what that means yet. Sometimes I think there’s a snake in the house because she hisses sssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss!! I find it so amusing to watch her process the associations. The other night she was waring a bib with a duck on it. While I was feeding her I was talking about the duck and making quacking noises. Later in the evening as I was reading her a story, a duck appeared. I pointed to the duck and started quacking. She pulled on her shirt and started looking for that duck! It is so wonderful to watch your child grow and learn!

  1. I’m feeling some baby vest love :)

    I agree with you about the whole gender/colour thing, it’s ridiculous. And I had no idea that red is a feminine colour – who knew? I saw, wear whatever you like – except the mustard/maroon combo. I hate that one.

  2. What…. no mustard / maroon!?!?! That’s my favorite ;)

    Yes, I LOVE the vest – very stylish! And POOOOO to those who associate gender with colour. I would dress my boys all in blue and people would STILL think they were girls!?!?!?!?! I think men in pink are HOT (which is why Scott has so many pink shirts in his wardrobe!)

    Off to B-more tomorrow…. back late Saturday…. will be in touch….

  3. Wish I was there to hear all of Frannie’s new works :(

  4. I mean… words…..

  5. Mustard and maroon are two of my favorite colours, especially together!! Just kidding!! I think my elementary school used that colour combination. Yuck.

    Have a great weekend away with the boys Sayer!

  6. I agree that gender/color association is a bit over the top. That said – Sara is welcome to the men in pink. ;)

    Red – however – red is a powerful color. A TON of guys wear red. Cameron has a lot of red. Tiger Woods wears red on Sundays.

    And that blue vest for Frannie is A-DOR-A-BLE! Nice job knitting Mama.

  7. Well, I can’t get Josh to wear pink:/

    Red is best! Red is my favorite colour and I think all boys look fantastic in red! I was quite surprised when a lady told me that boys couldn’t wear red!
