So, I'm off and knitting. So far, three days down and almost three inches of knitting. I'll have to pick up speed if I have any hopes of finishing by the closing ceremonies. Lots of work this weekend, though, and not much time to knit.

I have a rate of 1 row per 10 minutes, a row gauge of 6 rows/inch, so that's one inch/hour (of course, I calculated -- this is the Olympics). I'm going to figure out how much I have to get down in order to finish, becuase right now I'm thinking, "Was I even in my right mind to think I could knit a vest in 16 days?"

Here's a picture of the progress so far, although the color is WAY off.
