Newborn sweater

Here’s the beginnings of a new sweater – the last one I’m planning to make before the kiddo is born. (Two more endless months still left, but at a 7 st/in gauge, the sweater has the potential to take all of it.)

(I’m working sideways, so the button band is down, the neck is to the left, and I’m knitting across the chest towards the left sleeve.) The pattern calls for garter stitch throughout, but after trying that for a few rows, I decided that such tiny stitches deserve at least some stockinette. Now I’m thinking that I’ll do this yellow stockinette/blue garter stripe pattern for the front and sleeves, and use garter on the back? It’s quickly becoming the indecisive sweater.
