Wheee! She looks terrific! Looks like you got a really good fit, too, although it's hard to tell in the little pictures. (There's a way to change the thumbnail default size - poke around in the settings and I think you'll find it.) I was scared of doing set-in sleeves on my first sweater, too, and I had no helpful finishing techniques book. I just winged it by combining what I knew about seaming sides and top pieces, and although I had to re-do the first half of one sleeve, it came out pretty well. Fortunately, I was so ignorant it didn't really occur to me that there would be any other way of attaching sleeves, so I wasn't as intimidated as I might otherwise have been. I'm going to start seaming my Charlotte tonight - wish me luck! I hate weaving in ends the most, too.

your Rouge looks great! (I keep thinking I'm going to get yarn to make one of my own, but I can't seem to settle on what color I want!) Congrats on being done with your exam; I love post-test time, and understand what you mean about being able to do whatever I want without feeling guilty.
