Ravelympics 2010: progress

When my goal for Ravelympics was considered, I worried. With my shortened schedule because of Stitches West, the goal seemed like a bit of a stretch. It turns out that the vest is going much quicker than anticipated. With the very Southern holiday of Mardi Gras, when things actually close down for celebration, knitting time has been premium.

The armholes for the back have been decreased and things are progressing well. So well, that I took time out to make cupcakes for Valentine's Day.

Two words work their way into my mind. They seemed silly coming from a drunk, middle-aged woman celebrating her birthday during dinner last weekend, yet they must be used:

"yay, me"! She was happy because she just bought herself an iphone which was a little silly. Seems appropriate to describe knitting, though.

The vest is looking good, but the cupcakes.....I wish I could reach into the screen and grab one.
