Shalom with Irish Eyes!

So this is the Shalom Sweater that I'm making using the wool that my hairdresser brought me back from her trip to Scotland. I've been calling it the Irish Shalom. The wool is nice, about an aran weight, not too soft but very pretty and natural. I wasn't sure how much there was but figured in the neighborhood of 630 yards. I adjusted the pattern to make a larger sweater since the pattern comes in only one size and it's working out nicely. As an added bonus, I'm going to have a good bit of leftover yarn - might make Miss S a similar sweater to take to cold country with her.
