Thanks to everyone who left comments on my sweater, especially regarding the color issue. It turned out I was worried for nothing, because when my brother and future sister-in-law went to the doctor to find out the gender of the baby, the doctor told them it was a girl after all. I've really made some progress on my sweater though. I've gotten through the right side. Check it out below:

I'm really excited about the way it is turing out, and can't wait to finish. I think I found some booties that would go great with the ensemble too, and it looks like I will have more than enough yarn left over to make them.
