What a great job! Especially since that is your first sweater--wow! And I love how you've done the colors!

thanks, it was all an accident, lol. I bought clearanced self striping yarn-all the balls they had (3). then it became obvious that there wasn't going to be enough so I ran to the LYS yesterday and found something that was the closest match of any of the colors and approximately the same thickness. I would have preferred light red but nothing they had was orangey enough. When I was doing the sleeves I got too bored doing it in the same color so I added the rest of what I had in the self striping and voila! Something that looked planned! :rofling:

It is adorable!!!! I have never knit a sweater so I don't know what to say about sleeves - but picking up and knitting longer on the body should work!

Aww, that's cute! I havn't tried a sweater yet, but I have to agree on picking up stitches on the bottom to make it longer. I think ribbing would be really cute on it

great job! I love the colors and love the idea of having the sleeves "rollable" as little ones grow so quickly!!

Here it is with the ribbing. I really didn't have to do much for it to be a good length, basically just add an inch and make it stop curling! He's asleep or I would take a pic of it on him...
