Baby Sweaters
I've been knitting baby sweaters and booties for about three months now. I'm hoping my sons will get the hint. Anyway, for those of you who know my story, I'm sure you'll understand why I'm asking this question.

The sleeves...I've never seen anything in ANY of my knitting books, but is there a right and left sleeve? One of my sweaters doesn't look right and I can't figure out what's wrong with it.

For anyone looking for booties patterns, there's a great one on Lion's called 2 needle baby booties and it's shown in watercolors yarn. I've knitted these and they are fast and adorable...

I've never heard anything about two seperate sleeves. All the sweaters I've knit just had the same instructions for both sleeves.
One of many knitting guys.

The only time I've seen directions for a right/left sleeve has been when they are knit on the diagonal--I've never seen that for a regular sweater.
