I knitted this for my brothers baby boy due in September but love it and want to keep it. If I do another it won't be quite the same.

Can you do another one for your nephew and keep that one?

Why don't you do another and see how you feel when it's done.

I did this!

In the end though I gave nephew the one I made for him. All the way through doing it, in my head it was his. So it felt like I was keeping his blanket.

Then I kept the second one.

Does it have to be the same?

It can't be the same as its all odds and ends of balls of wool picked at random. I didn't know whether I was knitting for a niece or nephew when I started it so it has some sparkly pink in it. It does feel like it's already his.
I may have to get some monster needles and make an adult size one.

It's very beautiful. I'd keep it an knit him something else.... maybe go a little more down the 'blue/boyish' colour route in order to justify it.

I know everyone hates gender colouring on here but most people won't take offence of something with a bit of blue in it upon having a boy. And then you get to keep it or you can give it to me grin
