It wasn't always pretty, but I finished! 1 sweater, 17 days. Thank God it comes only once every four years!
I wore the sweater to work today, in celebration (and relief. plus, I hadn't done laundry). I'm really happy with the way it looks and the way it fits, except that I think the sleeves might be too short.
I'm going to wash it before I make any decisions (it's superwash, it might grow. and no, I didn't swatch). If it doesn't grow adequately, I'll probably cut the cuffs off, knit the sleeves a few inches longer, and then graft the cuffs back on. Fortunately, that isn't a decision that has to be made now. For now, I'm basking in the glory of Olympic gold.
