A little obsessed maybe?

With all the tennis on this week and next, I should finish my second vest soon. Whoops! Maybe not. Forgot about the reunion this coming weekend. But I do manage to knit whenever I sit down and am almost finished the back of my vest. And if I do say so myself it looks really, really good!

Today is middle Sunday at Wimbledon and they don't play that day. Why I don't know other than it is an old tradition and the English are very fond of their traditions. Mind you, a lot of people and nations are fond of their traditions as well, I am not just picking on the British. I am just miffed that I have a day that I thought I would spend watching tennis and I forgot about that whole no tennis on middle Sunday thing! So I will do some household chores today, mainly laundry and watch reruns of tennis on NBC this afternoon. We are invited out to a Canada Day dinner with friends this evening which should be a fun time and means I don't have to cook dinner. More knitting will get done today and perhaps I will start the front of the vest!

So here are the pics. The first is taken using a flash:

And the second is taken with natural indoor lighting:

I am not sure which one has the better colour so I posted both.

All I have left to do is turn that corner and then go down even with the bottom. Then I will pick up either the right green edge or the left purple edge at the top and start on the front! And that is how I am spending my Canada Day.

Happy Canada Day to everyone! Try out this Canada Day trivia quiz!

Bye bye for now.
