Day 2 of Lillie's Little Sweater

I worked on the sweater last night, finished the yoke and divided the stitches for the sleeves which I have decided to knit first seperately before knitting the body. The main pattern suggests knitting the body part first but I read further in the book and Joan
who helped design the pattern gave the instructions to knit the sleeves before the body. I have done sweaters similiar to this before and I prefer to knit the sleeves first. Sometimes it can be tricky meaning TIGHT getting that first row knit on the sleeves. I have enjoyed this design so far!! Already thinking of what yarn to use for the next one, heaven knows there's plenty in my stash.....
