First use of sock yarn sweater

Today was the first day that N had on the sweater I completed this summer. I was inspired by Druttknits to buy the the Opal sock yarn in colors that makes you happy and I cannot help thinking about ice cream. I was given the pattern in the store, it's in Swedish and is called Gunillas barntröja. I think the sleeves are too long and the body may be too tight later. It was fun and fast to knit but I had to do some calculations to have the stripes on the sleeves match the body.

I think you are right about the sleeves and the body. My sweater for Ivar is almost finished and it also looks a bit tight... and I cannot decide about the neck opening. How did you finish yours?
