A Sweet Pea for a Baby-to-be

My little cousin is expecting her first child soon, and a request was made for me to knit a sweater.
I have seen so many different iterations of the Puerperium Sweater, I couldn't resist giving it a try.
Such a speedy knit, I started it on Friday and tonight all that remains is the buttons.
I can't decide if I want green or if I should try to match the melon color of the yarn.
I will say that my knitting speed was greatly influenced by watching The Imitation Game. Such an exciting movie, my needles were flying!
What's on your needles tonight?
Update -
I just couldn't help myself... I had a lot of yarn left over, so I made a pair of Saartje's Bootees (with Rachel LeGrand's leafy variation) and a Super Quick Baby Bonnet.
What a joy to knit tiny things!
