I put the second sleeve on my tunic last night and is adorable. I pulled it on over my jeans and t-shirt though and my dad said I looked 12. Not like it was the first time I've heard something like that. But anyway, I still have to tuck all the pesky little ends in and take some pictures of it. I mostly made it for something loose and comfy to lounge in my mother and one of the other knitting ladies were already accessorizing it in their heads with leggings and t-shirts and other things. We shall see.

Pictures soon!

A lazy Sunday

Yesterday I slept in forever after the Eagles load-out at the new BOK center in town.  Once I did manage to get out of bed and get some coffee in me, I still wasn't motivated to do a whole lot but sit on the couch, which turned out to be the perfect thing to do all day because I managed to get in a lot of quality knitting time, which I had been sorely missing recently.  I only have one sleeve left to go on my summer shift from Speed Knitting.  Its going to be a big and floppy and furry and silly dress/tunic to lay around in since I used that slightly furry ribbon yarn instead of the cotton it called for.  I need to take some pictures of it.  I also worked on some present-y stuff at dinner (yay for Pie Hole and goat cheese & pineapple pizza) and I am almost done with the gift I have been toting around in my purse for the last few weeks.  Hopefully it is well received, but I have to wait a month or so to find out.  

I've missed my thursday night knitting group for the past month and I'm going to miss it again this week because I have a meeting that night.  I'm starting to feel bad for not showing up, but people keep scheduling things for thursday night.  Maybe I'll get there next week.  I am hoping we have monday night knitting tonight because I can totally finish the last sleeve and maybe get the ends tucked in on the tunic and then I could maybe finish the present and tuck the ends in on that and be ready to either start something new or go back and pick up one of my in-progresses.
