Tunic and Gaiter Pics

Here is the Tunic, finally.  Its not exactly what I wanted/pictures.  The neck is too wide to wear it by itself, so it will have to be layered over something, but it is kind of flowy.  I was really just looking for something hippie-style to lounge in, so we'll see.  There are still a few ends hidden on the inside that I haven't tucked in yet.  By the time I get around to that it will probably be cold here.  Oh well.
Below are gaiters number 1, 2 & 3.  I still have a fourth one to make.  Its going to be all green, I think.  The cashmerino is sooooo nice too work with and hopefully the guys will think its nice to wear.  :-)
And this is poor Riley dressed up in his Halloween shirt.  He's not sure how he feels about wearing clothes.  Its getting colder in the morning though and he doesn't seem to like to be cold much, so maybe he'll take to the clothes more as the temperature drops.  I hope so, because I'd like to knit him a little sweater.  :-)  
Not a whole lot else going on.  Working on trying to finish a number of things and thinking about what there is still time to make people for christmas.  Its ridiculous how much time flies.

I like the colors of your tunic. Lovely. And your little dog is so cute. Is he a Frenchie?

Riley is a Pug-Chihuahua mix. Some people call him a Chug. :-)

what does his shirt say?
I'm knitting Jess the ribbed top from Custom Knits (Wendy's book), and I make a mistake every pattern change.....

His shirt says "Guess Who?" :-) I think its cute. I put it on him for a few hours at a time every now and then, I'm hoping he'll get used to it. He has an adorable bomber jacket and a sweater for winter and I want him to like them! He doesn't seem to like to get his butt cold, so maybe once he realizes they keep him warm he will like them better.
