Anyway.... Because of my date confusion, you're being treated to a hastily written post today.
I've almost finished knitting my Blue Heron cowl that I mentioned last Monday. Although quite splity (or is it splitty? I'm a horrible speller and Spellcheck says both are wrong,) this yarn has been a delight to work with. I'm absolutely loving the drape of the knitted fabric. My original plan was for this to be a long, twist around your neck a bunch of times type cowl but.... Since I didn't check my gauge or even count my cast on stitches.... It turned out to be the perfect mini poncho size. I'm only a few rows from casting it off and can't wait to wear it to some nice, chilly, air conditioned event.
But even more exciting than my knitting.... Do you see my shirt? I know it's upside down but.... It's a tank tank.

Did you hear about the stolen military 'tank-like' vehicle that lead police on a chase through Richmond a few weeks ago? While the reality of it is pretty scary - I mean, what if the thing had been armed and the driver angry rather than just in need of a ride home....

But honestly, it was pretty dang funny. You can see a brief video of it here. And because it was funny, the news went viral. And because it went viral, there was a t-shirt made. Or rather, a tank. A Tank tank. I had to have one!
And with that, I'm going to leave you so I can go deal with that awful scraped up nail polish and get back to knitting. Happy better late than never Makers' Monday!
