Vintage knit

This could be the easiest thing I've ever knitted... I simply cast on, followed the pattern, and it fits! The sleeves are the same length, I'm just standing funny. 'Short-sleeved striped cotton sweater' from Vintage Knits by Sarah Dallas. (Actually, it's that pattern, but I used the stripe pattern from another one in the same book, and made the body one stripe longer.)

i love it! it's a little advanced for me (i'm still on scarves and hats/bowls), but maybe some day i'll be able to knit one as cool as yours!
