I would weave first.  Personal preference.

Just a question -- are you using the suggested yarn or did you substitute?  If so, what did you substitute with?  I really like that sweater and I am strongly considering making it.  I just don't want to spend tons of money on the yarn as I have dropped a lot on yarn recently!

I am also going to leech on here and introduce.  My name is lacey and I just started knitting in March, when ds was only about 3 weeks old.  I needed a new hobby, and with two babies in the house (dd is 3 years old and ds is now 4 months) I needed something portable, challenging, but not too dangerous.  I've sewn for almost my entire life, but it's not practical as it takes up my whole dining room and leaves outrageously dangerous pins, needles, rippers, etc, everywhere for toddler hands to find. 

When I started knitting, I knew NOBODY who was interested.  I got a kit at Target to knit some capelet, but it was way too hard.  Here's how newbie I am -- it came with circular needles, and I thought that was a tag or a way of holding the needles together until you needed to use them, so I cut them apart!  (And I have a Master's Degree.  Sad.)  Since then, I have tried out a couple scarves with cheapie yarn.  Then, I liked it so much that I checked out every book from my local library and tried more stuff.

Now, I am enrolled in a sweater class where I am halfway through my first sweater.  I have made scarves, hand/wrist warmers, mittens, and now a sweater.  I am expecting a new niece or nephew in December, and I really want to learn intarsia because I want to knit the SnB Baby's First Tattoo sweater for the baby! 

Everyone here seems really nice and knowledgeable.  I just wanted to introduce!
