I love colour work!

Can I just say I love when the Olympics are on!! I dont care if they are winter or summer I just love them! :) I couldnt wait for the opening ceremonies to start I made sure I did all my running around before hand. Actually I ended up putting off stuff I wanted to do so that I could make sure I was at home when they started! :) Im so glad I was. As is normal I loved the show thought it was excellent. Weve been watching all the coverage BBC is showing on the telly and enjoying every minute of it.
As Ive mentioned I joined the Ravelympics and started knitting. I cant believe how quick my Road to Golden has gone. Ive finished up to the arm gussets and have started the arms now.

that was after a couple of days knitting on it. And I redid the charts because I changed the colours to make it easier for me to follow I recoloured them in and then added bits of the yarn to the side so I knew what yarn goes with what colour.

The is the finished state from yesterday just sat to the side now until I do the sleeves. I cant believe how quick its gone! Aran weight wool really does knit up quickly!

And then a close up of the gusset stitches.
Id show the arms but theres nothing really to show of them but a few garter stitch rows. Wait till I get more and Ill show then. Knitting both of em at the same time, hope these go as quick as the body did! :)

I love it! What yarn are you using (or did I over looked it?)? That's on my to-do list to do one of these days.
