Olympic Shalom

I started and finished Shalom out of Cascade Ecological wool in shade 9008 during the Olympics. Not as big of a challenge as other knitters but I didn't know if I could finish a sweater in 17 days so it was a challenge for me. Here are the specs: US 10.5 knitpick circulars and I used 2 skeins with 150 grams left over. The sweater is mighty warm and the fit is ok and my buttonholes subpar, so I'm giving my self a bronze, even though the yarn harlot has a gold medal for everyone.
