First the good news. All this tweedy lacy tunic - y goodness. Once again I have to thank the knitting gods for giving me a soothing, therapeutic project to turn to when everything else seemed to go to hell in a handbasket. If it's any indicator of my weekend, I can tell you that this regular length sweater somehow turned into a tunic.


That extra length might have been an unconscious decision, based on my strung out needs these past couple of days, but design-wise, I'm thinking it's a good thing.

This will make a lovely tunic...



See, we had houseguests.
Who aren't my biggest fans, and ho don't drink cocktails, wine or beer. Houseguests who make me nervous enough to spend a few days filling every silence by blathering on and on about all kinds of shit and then wondering if I even made any sense.

Luckily, I had the knitting to keep me sane on the inside even if I seemed like a crazy person on the outside. But, all's well that ends well, right? I have a tunic, my house and family back to myself, and I'm ready to get back to feeling like the competent wife, parent and human that I usually feel like.



Deep sigh. Time to eat some tombstone cupcakes!
(or one of those cider and rum thingys)

Only 4 days till Rhinebeck!!!??

Last time we had house guests like that I informed my husband if he invited them back (his side of the family) I'd leave while they were here. And I meant it.

Lovely tunic!!! It's gorgeous. Enjoy your cupcake, a rum thingy and it'll be Rhinebeck time soon. :)

ahhh -- that's too funny (after the fact) the best part about houseguests is when they leave, right!?

Ha! Some guests aren't like fish, they're like farts. They stink right off the bat and everyone keeps blaming each other for the misery.

Knitting is a great distraction to keep you out of the loop when you have those kinds of houseguests! So sorry...the tunic looks lovely though.

Gorgeous tunic. Sorry you had to get it while hosting un-cool houseguests. At least you had a tombstone cupcake and that lovely lovely yarn.

Knitting IS therapeutic. Thank goodness you had that and cupcakes. I cannot wait until you report back on Rhinebeck.
