Both sweaters are adorable and so well done. Your son is the perfect model, just as cute as could be. Lovely work (and yes, sleeves on the second sweater).

Very cool concept and wonderful execution! This reminds me a little bit of the "Solar System Sweater" a friend of ours made for her son who's around the same age.

As for the sleeves/no sleeves question, I'm gonna concur with Jan. If it's cold enough to warrant a warm sweater, you're probably going to want sleeves.

Thanks! Sleeves then. To ArtLady -- I think it is the round neck and the 'round' apperance because of the couch cushions. It's actually quite 'tall' and 'thin' but you woudn't say from the picture.

Most likely this sweter will stay in a ziploc bag till next season -- it's too big for my son but my dinosaur-loving daughter rejected in on the basis of being 'for boys'

p.s. It's nice to 'hang out' here with you even when it's a rare occasion

Lovely fun project! Your daughter's loss for not wanting it, I would wear it and I'm 46!! It would have to be a bit bigger though, lol!

I love this! I'm a big fan of dinosaurs myself. I like both the sweater and vest, but if I had to pick one I'd probably go with sleeves.
