I’m still conflicted about the whole pre-order thing from yesterday and I need to think of some rules for this and for things like gifts but I will get back to that in a few days. Plus that’s not what this post is about.

This post is about finally finishing a project! Last night at about 7:30pm I finished knitting Granpa’s vest!!! I have to find toggles this weekend and then it will be done done but all the knitting is done and that’s what counts.

It’s been a while since I officially finished a knitting project. I forgot what it felt like to have nothing on the needles. To hold up a project to show the fiance who’s only mildly excited whereas I’m giddy like a 12-year-old. It feels good. Plus I should be get a little RavOlympic Medal for this!!! Go Me!! I will post pictures of the vest once I have the toggles on and maybe I’ll be able to get one of Gramps in the vest (most shocking)!

I’m moving on to the Lotus Blossom Shawl which I have only 12 rows to finish and then I’m done. I plan on working 2-3 rows a day so I can finish this before the end of the Olympics and maybe get another RavOlympic medal. I have to be careful to not knit too much and to take breaks because I don’t want my cubital tunnel syndrome to come back. That sucked. I couldn’t knit for months and I had to wear this stupid arm brace when I slept. We called it the bionic arm. I refuse to get that bad again.

I’m not feeling 100% this morning and that worries me. A co-worker was home with a fever on Monday and Tuesday and then my fiance said he didn’t feel well yesterday and now I’m stuffy and drippy and my eye won’t stop watering. I’m going to make like it’s just allergies till I can’t deny it anymore. Lot’s of vitamin c and I’ll beat this thing!!
