Baby Ben's Vest

Couldn't be simpler, which is good because I was so excited by the news that I had to produce a welcoming present instantmediately and without delay, pronto. A friend, who for a moment until the final adoption papers are signed shall remain known as Ithaca Red, attended the birth and cut the cord of her son Ben, a very few days ago. I learned on the 13th of his arrival ( on the 10th), and knitting all night (not really), while watching season 4 of "Lost," my size 4 needles shaped this boxy and boy-y little vest. Made with leftover Cleckheaton 8-ply (superwashable) wool, it's soft and springy with twisted rib edges, measures almost square (11' w x 13" h); and I'll go get a shirt to go within--off to Target.
