we had to get some snow (which promptly melted)
and some freezing rain (at my favourite farm)
and sooner or later,
I would finish my summer knitting ~I did say I would be busy~ in between the snow and freezing rain.

Photographing this was like taking pictures of your new black puppy - a black blob.
And it was November, dark and raining (or snowing).
Sooner or later I would give up trying to come up with a good photo. My teenage photographer was getting a little impatient standing out in the rain, hence the blurring ones in the bathroom...
and the equally crappy one with flash.
But I do love the tunic.
For something so simple, I had two false starts, one with size issues and the other, something I have never ever done before - I twisted my cast on row on a circular needle and didn't discover it until several rows in... sooner or later it had to happen. For 30 years knitting it's a pretty good track record, though.
I used a cheaper substitute yarn than recommended, it was that or not knit at all (sacrifices due to being poverty stricken) but I do like the way it came out in the end and there should be no stretching-out problems.
And the saving grace is that it can be worn with a turtle neck, so I'm calling it a year round knit that I just may have started in summer, ahem.
I now have a more seasonably appropriate one halfway done.
Let's just pray for some light.
