FO- Hearts on my Sleeve (Ravelympics)

Hearts on my sleeve - Finished! My Ravelympics "sweaterboard cross" event sweater. From scratch and done in a week. Ok. Today was a bit hectic - especially today. When I realized the sleeves were not fitting, I had to do the little extra" underneath. Now they might be slightly too big. But it is 17 wonderful hanks of Noro Kabuto yarn, and - yes - maybe hard to see - but there are pockets. Two of them, and real ones - with home-made cearamic buttons. This means I concluded the third of the four events. Unfortuntately no "beads" involved so I have to drop out of that event, but definitely sweater board cross medal. I also used a small very expensive ball of "Habu" in a strange flimsy yarn for the sleeve edge, the collar and the pockets. Now - this is gray hour in Sweden. Look at the next pic done at the same time with a flash. Amazing. It is pretty dark -blue outside. Tpmorrow our kitchen will arrive! How great! then it is just three layers of Linseed-paint to get it in shape. So, this is the first days there has been warmer than freezing here, so it is becoming wet!
Have a nice knitting Sunday. I will at least attempt my last event... "OS in the bag".. but I might not get it. I have to work tomorrow.

The sweater is beautiful! And again I am in awe that you knit a sweater in a week. I can manage a sweater in a month. Congrats on finishing your sweater!
