Va va voom dilemma...

I'm nearly finished the front of my va va voom sweater.Of course, as I was working the second side of the neck I realized that I made a bit of a booboo on the first side. Since I'm the perfectionist that I am I can't just leave it like that... It will be ripped some time this afternoon I'm sure.

So the dilemma I have once I finish the front is moving on to the sleeves. I have the option to make them either full length sleeves or three-quarter length. It's a toss up for me. Three-quarter would be cute, but full length would be warmer.

So, friends, what do you think? Full length or three-quarter?

I like the 3/4 sleeve look with this sweater (recalling this from the book). You could make wristies or fingerless gloves (beaded?) to compensate.

I personally prefer full length sleeves. But that's because it's cold right now. What yarn are you using? Is it a spring-weight yarn? Because then I'd say go 3/4.

I'd vote for full length. I don't think I've ever seen a 3/4 sleeve sweater. Strikes me as an odd thing for a sweater.

I like full length. But heck, I'm not going to be wearing the sweater, you are!

I'm going to have to go with longsleeve for lighter weight yarn, 3/4 for this alpaca. Up in snow country, the full length would be better, but you'll only be there for this semester. Go 3/4. =-D

My favorite sweater that I consider "VA VA VOOM" is 3/4...I vote for that!

3/4 - especially for this sweater. Bracelet length sleeves.

I say 3/4. It just seems to fit with the sweater look.

I'm jumping on the 3/4 bandwagon. Who needs practicality?! I mean, come on... are you going to be wearing the sweater outside in the middle of winter with no coat? NO! And what kind of enviornment are you in where you can't turn the heat to 68 or 70.

Just think, with 3/4 you can wear it fall, winter, and spring! especially with the color you choose.

go for sex appeal. 3/4 for sure.

Full length. It is more practical and more likely to last through trends. Just my opinion.

3/4 all the way!! I've seen some really cute 1/2 sleeves too (end at the elbow)
