Knitting Olympics - GOLD!

I haven't checked in at all in the past two weeks, but I've been knitting feverishly and managed to finish my Peter Rabbit sweater!

For the sweater (Saddle Shoulder Sweater - Child by Ann Budd), I made the 26" size but added 2.25" to the length. I also knit the neckband in the round (to avoid another seam) and bound off using the Russian bind-off so it would be super stretchy to fit over my little guy's head. Then to add the duplicate stitching from the Run Rabbit Run Sweater by Erica Wilson, I ended up with only 3 bunnies instead of 4 since that is all that would fit with my gauge.

Here's some progress pictures:

And here are my Ravelry badges for the events I competed in:
