Aidan's sweater... finally finished.. :)
Well, I can't seem to load the thing from my files or from flickr... probably because I just don't know how so here is the address:
www.flickr.com/photos/tema360/
I got a lot of help with this sweater from all you wonderful knitters here, especially for the sleeves... thank you so much!
Just wanted you to see that I actually got it finished...
I love the wee thing. I think it will fit him until he is 3 at least!
The pattern called for varigated yarn all thru but I wanted to use a different colour for the ribbing and the sleeves. (partly because I didnt' think I had enough yarn of the lighter colour) I think the sleeves look great... I also did them in plain knitting instead of the same pattern that is on the front and back of the sweater.
Hope you can see it...

It looks great!

Well. I have the info on my signature, but it appears Flickr has changed so you can no longer embed a photo. If you've resized it you can still attach it though from your computer. I'll look into the other issue.

It's wonderful! I rather prefer the contrasting sleeves, Tema! The entire sweater is very balanced and appealing! Great work, even though you had to tweak yarn-wise! You'd never know it wasn't planned like this from the beginning! I love happy endings! You're so talented!

Aw, Shucks, Art Lady.... :)
Coming from you, that is great praise indeed! I'm flattered!
I like to knit plain pieces and then tweak the colour a bit... not always successful but I think it worked very well here.
Thank you for the 'lift'!
