Baby Blues

It’s a boy’s world out there with frogs to catch, forts to build, and the occasional kite to fly. With a slighter higher ratio of boys being born over girls (a prevalent trend since 1940) it really is no surprise that baby outfits are being knit predominantly in shades of blue.  Finding a good selection of patterns for baby boys is a walk in the park, just take a browse through the extensive catalogues of both Sirdar and Sublime, two leading British manufacturers offering tiny designs that are contemporary and appealing in yarns sturdy enough to stand up to whatever little guys can get into.
