I'm FINALLY casting on tonight.  Anyone know about airlines and knitting needles?  are they banned in your carry-on?

nope, haven't been for a while now.  i will, however, recommend that you bring along a SASE large enough to fit your needles into, just in case.  even though they are not on the TSA banned list, it is up to the discretion of the security checkers.  i used one of those tyvek envelopes that won't rip, and i just leave it in my carry-on so that i have it, just in case.

there's a permanent thread at the top of the discussions & questions section of this board that discusses it. =]

That looks great, knitchick2!  I've been lurking on this kal a while admiring everyone's prairie tunics. 

I'm thinking of doing this in hemp (the yarn that's recommended for the maze hats in the current knitty).  Not that I have the time, so it's kind of silly.  But it's true that I am *thinking* of it.

I'm still hanging in there, about 10" into the front.    I had to pause to knock out a pair of socks for the Afghan refugees, but I'm back in the saddle.  Digicam has moved on to Belgium without me, but I've actually gone so far as to buy a new one for myself, so by the time it arrives I should be ready to provide you all with some actual photos of this thing on a human body.  I can't wait to wear this top-- the linen yarn is so crisp and summery, the color a nicer raspberry than it looks like in the photos, and it'll reveal my summer swimming shoulders.  Soon!

Ok, so it's not on my body yet...but judging from the deafening silence around here, neither is anyone else's.  (excepting the uncannily fast Juniperl, of course). 

Here it is relaxing on my porch:

And here's a closeup of my racerback part:   I was again distracted by another quick project... I've got a niece on the way, and suddenly this fetus needed a little raspberry hat.  I just joined a swap, too, so you can bet more distractions will be coming.  I may end up wearing this under an overcoat in December, but I will persevere!

I promise to post soon.  I've been distracted re-working and re-sizing an older project for a friend.

Lambsear I loooove the color you're knitting it in.  It's very summer-y and girly!

Thanks for the encouragement, everybody! When I think it's going slowly, I just try to remember there are no sleeves looming ahead.  Just finish the front and I'm ready to go.  The sad thing about this great color is that I got this yarn for cheap because this color is being discontinued Undecided.  Awww.  Back to knitting!

This thread has inspired me to pick my tunic back up and finish it already.  I knit up the back pretty quickly a few weeks ago; I got almost halfway through the front and got sidetracked by a pair of socks.  Damn socks--how they tempt me!

But yeah, I'm using Patons Grace in a yellow champagne-y color that is just gorgeous.  I'll try to put up some in-progress pics soon.

A+!
