Too Much Excitement

I have finished all the knitting of my Deep V Vest! There is so much excitement welling up inside of me, I'm not sure I can sleep.

I was working on the ribbing for the last couple days living in a cozy state of equal parts confidence and denial. Confidence because I did not even try it on after I cut the steeks--just dove right into knitting the ribbing. Denial because I was not going to even consider the possibility of it not fitting me.

I told Troy at some point that if it did not fit, I was going to be completely crushed. I was falling more and more in love with the vest as it neared completion.

Tonight I cast off the last stitch; worked in the last end; and finally tried it on.

IT FITS! IT FITS!

I resisted the urged to sleep in it and instead soaked it and blocked it and can now look forward to wearing it on Sunday to Red Purl.

Life is good.
