I really like this pattern. Lots of lovely cable details, varying textures, and a nice seed stitch shawl collar. I think this will work well for a boy or a girl. And I had enough yarn let to knock out a pair of booties as well.
The pattern is Trellis, from Knitty, my favorite knitting website, and the yarn is a nice cotton-acrylic blend from KnitPicks. It's machine washable/dryable - perfect for kids' stuff. Hope they like it!
