A quick update

A very quick update on my Ravelympics sweater as I'm on my lunch break and the knitting must continue! The back is blocked, I finished the front last night and will probably be blocked tomorrow. I've cast on for the first sleeve, but I have long arms so I'm pretty sure I won't get the thing finished by Sunday's closing ceremony. I am, however, pleased with what I have done. The stitch pattern's very effective and I think it's a sweater I'll wear a lot. So what if I'm not an olympic speed knitter? I've never got this much of a sweater made in such a short time, so I've definately beat my personal record, and that pleases me!
