I absolutely LOVE your Fifi with the long sleeves! You did a fabulous job. So interested in seeing more pics of your Fifi that I checked out your blog. Thank you for sharing.

I absolutely love it! How many balls of Calmer did you need?

Ooh, I like the long-sleeved version. I'm adding longer sleeves to mine (not as long as yours though) and it's good to know that they'll work with the pattern. Yours looks lovely!

Girl!!!!! THIS is BEAUTIFUL!!!! I also want to know how many skeins of calmer you used and what size you made....

Wow, I love your long sleeves! It's making me wish I'd done them too. Heck, maybe I will -- I still have over 2 balls of Calmer left.

I think I'm going to revise my Fifi and add long sleeves on I love yours so much. I was wondering what to do with the extra 2 1/2 balls. Long sleeves and a hat maybe.

i've had this in my ravelry queue since it was nominated for the kal with plans to make exactly this mod--i LOVE the long sleeves, and i see that i'm not the only fan of belled sleeves! it is GORGEOUS. and that color is divine. we must meet one of these days, fellow 'burgher! :) and are you on ravelry yet?

i ordered two extra balls of calmer for the long sleeves and only used a part of one of them. i still have one untouched ball and most of another left over for a grandkid sweater with some additional colored stripes anyway. i made the xs. i am lucky when it comes to knitting to be so tiny little.
