The sweater looks great!! Good luck with the sleeves!!
Just jump in! The worst that can happen is you get stuck and have to post her to get started again.

Are they knit in the round or flat and then seamed? If knitted flat, do them both at the same time on the same needle using 2 different strands of yarn. Just make sure you keep them separate. This way they will come out the same length and all of the increases will be on the same rows.
Just jump right in and start them :thumbsup: !!

The body is gorgeous! I can't wait to see it completed! If the body is any indication, the sleeves will look wonderful, too. You can do it! :thumbsup:

It looks great so far! Sleeves aren't hard--look how much you've done already! :thumbsup:

You'll do great! What is so nice about raglans is that you can try on the sweater as you knit, so you can easily shape the sleeves as you go.
I like to do mine on a circ, or a pair of circs (don't like dpns much).
