What are you most proud of? That the kids I made these sweaters for are wearing them! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't be afraid of a top down sweater. Use circular needles and make sure the first row isn't twisted before joining the ends. As you add increase rows, switch to a needle with a longer cord. The Gemmell's instructions are some of the clearest and easiest to follow on top down knitting, so I recommend getting their book.
