A quick knit

Talking to my neighbour on Sunday I discovered her baby is due at the beginning of September.
As we are on holiday for the due date I wanted to make sure I had a gift ready but looking through my bag of already knit items I found that all the newborn things are in girly styles and colours. As they do not know the sex I decided i'd better get knitting something boyish. I was tempted to knit my 'old favourite' matinee jacket and even got the pattern and yarn ready but then decided to do something different. I found a lovely little sweater pattern in seed stitch and am using the white yarn to knit it in.

I sat out in the sun yesterday and soon got the back done and am halfway up the front. The sleeves are plain stocking stitch.
It looks far too warm and snuggly for the weather we are having now but i'm doing the 2nd size and September may be chillier.
I'll have to remember to photograph and blog the finished garment.

Lovely texture and how nice to be able to knit some sunshine into it by sitting outside!
