First of all I want to thank everyone who gave help & suggestions for better looking left slanting decreases, I clearly have some homework to do before I get to the decreases on the fronts which I have just begun, meanwhile the sleeves have been blocked.

I'm knitting this up in Katia Mississippi, perhaps it's just a cotton thing, maybe it's the adjustment to a more substantial yarn & needles thing (after all I've been knitting socks most of the year) but I am finding it hard to keep an even tension. Blocking has straightened things out a lot but, you know, it's not perfect.
I've also just noticed that the YO's on the right side are bigger than the ones on the left, what's with that?

And now for the final reveal on the Kool-Aid colours:

L-R: Artic Green Apple, Pina Pineapple, Mango, Orange, Tropical Punch & Watermelon Cherry.

Looks mighty fine to me but I know I always have nigggles with my knitting ;)

The kool-aid colours look great.
The sleeves look great!! I have issued with the same thing - I think the holes in lacy things are bigger on the left side too!! nice dyeing!!!
I agree the sleeves look great!

The Kool Aid dying looks great! Love the colours.

I love the colours - so vivid
Those sock colors are beautiful! I could see a "Summer of Socks" kit where you sell two skeins of each in one big kit!!

Congratulations on finishing those sleeves! It sounds like they were quite a challenge. My yarnovers aren't always even either, but I'm not sure how to fix them. I'm sure that since we are the ones knitting, we see everything super close up, but most other people really won't notice. They'll be so impressed that you made the sweater yourself!!
love how the colours turn out!!! i think we need some blue!!! hehe
