We had our 18-21 week scan a few weeks ago and discovered that our baby is (most likely) a little girl. The radiographer was extremely confident, I just like to have an element of doubt "just in cases".
Nevertheless, I indulged in my first bit of baby craft which is pretty girly on purpose. I struggle with crochet when the size it ends up is really important. Hats are tricky for example. And despite the fact I did the what-you-may-call-it tension testy thing, this cardy turned out OK... But probably a little big width wise and a little short length wise, and the arms are huge, with the "wrist holes" smallish. I was gunning for newborn size, but we shall see. Certainly too big for a newborn, but maybe by 3 months (yes, when it will be pretty much summer!) she will get to wear it.
I used a pattern from "Weekend crochet for babies" by Sue Whiting which I borrowed from the library. It has really sweet patterns in it, but as always with me and crochet patterns, they always have a bit or two where the directions seem ambiguous.
I know some people prefer the gender of their baby to be a surprise when baby is born, but I am so pleased to "know". It makes me feel like this is really happening, and allows us to do a little bit of planning. (But if "she" turns out to be a "he" on D-day, we won't be at all disappointed.)
