Fantastic! I'm still new to crochet and am definetly not at the garment level, but this makes me want to get there soon!
The ribbed band at the bottom is a great idea! I don't know why so many sweaters (bought and made) end up so short, but then I like my shirts long.
In summary: love love love! And it looks great on you!

I'm glad you lengthened it. It would have been silly if you hadn't. I also love what you did with the sleeves. Very creative! I never use patterns exactly as they are either. I always modify them in some way.

pennydreadfull: don't be scared!  it will be a great adventure, just be very careful about choosing the right yarn and pattern!  good luck!
