I need some ideas for gender neutral soaker colors.

I am getting a pair of pants and a soaker for the new babe and dont have any colors in mind. So I need some inspiration!

Post links, your favorite colors and ideas!

I like going to Hand painted yarns or I will visit the galleries of knitting WAHMs to get ideas.

I think most color combos are GN unless they are pink.

And actually I just ordered a soaker with some pink in it, just because it was so beautiful. And afterall, its for a newborn, so even if its a boy, he wont mind.

visit the galleries of the larger WAHMs(or the ones that have been around a long time) like BBB MM and KSS's galleries.
Then also you can browse places that dye yarn like LTK, HSY, dashingdachs.com, and yarndealer.com
and more

I love Nada's gallery of yarns
at HC. She made a pair of perfection pants for my ds and we just love them; so soft, expertly made and beautiful colors

if you join DD yahoo group she has even more colorways in her album. I say save all the ones you like to a folder, then slowly weed out what might be too girly or too boyish and eventually you will get down to the right ones.
