Woollie Jumper

I've been knitting a jumper for my friend's baby - a little blue and white striped affair....well, that was until whilst knitting the last sleeve I realised that the white wool was aran weight and the blue double knitting, therefore there was less white wool....

The question was then, what to do? There wasn't going to be enough white wool left to finish the sleeve so I decided to add in some red. So now the majority of the jumper is blue and white, but one sleeve is red, white and blue...I am sure the baby won't mind.
