Summer Fair Isle

It's done! And I think it turned out quite well - not perfect, but for a first attempt, I'll certainly take it! :)
Fair Isle Jacket by Debbie Bliss, from Essential Knits for Kids.
She likes it, and is willing to wear it, so that's a good thing ;)
There's a funky messed up part right in the center next to a button, but oh well!
I think next time I make it, if I do, I would make the cuffs of the sleeves a little wider - cast on more stitches & reduce the steepness of the increases - because they're a bit tight.
Ultimately, I'm pleased & would do it again!  I just have to figure out how to carry the color to another row without messing up my stitches... or maybe I should just cut the yarn on every row, or do an extra stitch or two at the ends of the rows...  Advice anyone?
