Thanks oodles and bunches for helping me with my dilemma in choosing colors for my niece's Christmas throw! I have really gone back and forth on this one.
However, she (unknowingly) clinched it when she confided in a family member that she never got to select something color wise without a well meaning adult pressuring her to change it to suit their tastes. Well, that did it for me. This kiddo that I love so much will get exactly her color preferences.
Of course, they are not necessarily choices that I would have made, but I can always make another throw for her when her tastes change :-)
That gives me another ripple to plan....
