Guess and win!

Yes, yes, I've been AWOL. Hopefully this will make you judge me less harshly!

We've set the date for our ultrasound for February 5th, 2 weeks from today. At this ultrasound, we will hopefully see a healthy baby, and find out the sex.

So place your guesses here! Am I having a boy or a girl? Will I need to knit the viking hat with braids or without? (And believe me, I'll be knitting one of them!)

PLEASE GUESS BY FEBRUARY 4TH!

I will choose a random winner from amongst those who guessed correctly. Winner will be announced on the 6th (hopefully), and will receive a $20 Amazon.com gift card (new knitting books, anyone?).

In the case that the baby's shy, I'll just pick a random winner from amongst everyone who enters with a guess!

Important EDIT: Please, please, please leave me some sort of way of contacting you. A blog where I can comment, an email, a Ravelry ID, something. I won't spend valuable knitting time tracking you down, sorry!

I'm guessing girl. Here come the viking braids!

Hmm, let's see now. 2008 saw 4 baby girls born to moms where I work. Therefore I think 2009 will be the year for boys. Blue viking hats without braids then. Good luck with the ultrasound!

I'm guessing a boy! Either way is great, though, isn't it? Best of luck.

I'm going to guess boy, although it's hard to guess from far away! Good luck with everything!

Girl! I don't know why, just because Viking Girls rule.

I am guessing a girl. Good luck!

My 7 yo says Boy! :D I trust his opinion as he correctly guessed we were having twins (and their sexes) before the docs knew.

Either way, it's fabulous! :D

I'm going to go with girl. Last year seemed to be an even split so who knows, but I like the idea of a girlie viking.

I will guess a boy... I mean a viking hat just sounds masculine to me, lol

I'm hoping for a girl for you, but I feel like it will be a boy. I don't know why, but it's a feeling.

Girl! Viking braids and all. :o)

Congratulations on your pregnancy! I'm guessing a boy. Good luck on your ultrasound!

Ok, In Feb there have been two males that were born in my family. I'm going with the odds and saying this time there will be a girl.

Congrats!!!!

hmm...so hard to say! You could at least post a pic of your belly so all the old wives tales could kick in! Let's go with girl because viking braids are hysterical!

Boy, though I want to see braids!

 
At 8:26 AM, Blogger gruene_beadle said...

It's a boy! You know, because Gnarly is such a boy nickname. Like, Gnarly Dude!

Hopefully you'll get a good view of everything and all will be perfect and healthy. Then hopefully you'll get a good look at the family jewels, and if I'm right they'll be masculine jewels. ;) No braids, is my guess.

Many people seem boy-crazy, so I will say "girl". I knitted your Double Layer Cabled hat early in 08 and it's still a favorite knit. I hadn't realized you moved to Cleveland and wanted to let you know there's a very nice yarn store in Avon, French Creek Fibers - worth the drive! I'm knitonepurltoo on Ravelry.

 
At 11:50 AM, Anonymous allioop said...

Im guessing a girl, but I think you should make the braids either way - maybe some manly sort of viking-guy braids for a boy?

A girl! It seems like out Rav thread has more girls than boys.

 
At 12:24 PM, Blogger Cecile said...

OMG Those caps are soooo cute. The little baby with the braids looks just like a gnome--like from Piet huygens book.

I vote girl - braids.

Stay well!!

I'm going to guess boy. Based on nothing. Hope he's not shy for you and that everything is going well!

I'm guessing a girl. Why not?

 
At 3:18 PM, Blogger Jen said...

Braids!!! So a girl!

 
At 3:20 PM, Blogger BarbaraJean said...

I'm guessing boy just because I have 2 boys. :) Best wishes! (Barbelle of Reclaiming the Home on Ravelry)

 
At 3:26 PM, Blogger littlepeepsmom said...

I think I will have to guess braids-- so fun. I will be having a little boy on Feb. 11th-- love those babes!

 
At 4:02 PM, Blogger Traci said...

I'll go with girl since I have two of my own.

 
At 5:01 PM, Blogger jeniffercox said...

I'm guessing a girl! I think that if you have a boy you should do a long braid down the back though :) My Rav id is, jenknitsalot. Have a blast at your ultrasound!

 
At 5:43 PM, Blogger Coggie said...

more girls are born each year than boys, so that gives a better than 50% chance of it being a girl. So with the odds, I say braids are a go.

hmmm...i am guessing pink viking hat with braids.---just because everyone gets pink but me ;P

Hm...for some reason I keep seeing braids, but that could be just because I already have 2 girls of my own!! Lol.

I'm hopping in last minute to guess, but I think you're going to have a boy :) Congratulations and good luck either way - it's a 50/50 chance you get one or the other, but a 100 percent chance you'll love them to death.
