I finished the tunic, and just love it. Wearing it is a bit like wearing a shawl that doesn’t slip out of place. I’m not sure how long it will last, as I expect it to catch on every little thing, but the yarn is pretty sturdy, and I can always make another one if it gets too ragged.
Tomorrow is the Portland Marathon, so I am getting my gear laid out, and eating, drinking fluids and resting in preparation. Experience has taught me that no matter what I do, the last 6 miles are dreadful. Everything I do is about surviving that last 6 miles. I saw a t-shirt at the Expo today that said “WTF? means Where’s the finish?”, and that will be running through my mind in the morning. The weather looks to be great, so I just need a little bit of luck for a great race.
