Is this too loose?

It's cold down here in southern Tasmania.
My little bubs hands are always cold because he always has his arms in the air.
Solution... Arm warmers.
I spoke with mum (the worlds most experienced knitter) and she advised me to use a knitting needle 2 sizes bigger to cast on and to cast on around 20 stitches for his little arms. 
So I did. But look at it (above) is the actual knitting (rib stitch) too loose?  
Should I undo it and try again with different needle size to make it tighter?
