The goal: To cast on a project during the opening ceremonies of the 2008 Beijing Olympics-- a project of somewhat epic proportions-- and finish it by the end of the closing ceremonies on the 24th. 17 days of mad knit sprinting!!
My event: The Sweater Sprint
The project: A self-designed sweater for my fairly manly-sized cousin Mark, who is currently in attendance at the actual Olympics.
My Team: Team Middle Earth. One Team To Rule Them All!
My Yarn: Cascade 220 Heathers in colorway "Shire" (of course).
My Status: Four days down, back completed.

On to the front!!
