Question from KittyKatz, “LaLa Since you knit so much for babies in the South – i have 2 people who are due in February, neither are finding out the sex. We live in North Carolina, which while not as hot as Mississippi, it is still warm. Do you have any suggestions for knitting projects for baby presents?

thank you!!!”
