I've found something that I think I like for the TDST (top-down Summertime Tunic) - it's basically a rib pattern with a bunch of yarn overs and a k3tog thrown in for good measure.

So far it seems to be working out ok. I was thinking about increasing to allow a little extra hip room, but with this stretchy rib I don't think I'm going to need it.
Devil's skirt made great progress today (2x1+ hour bus rides, but 1 hr SnB at lunchtime made for several inches of striping). I didn't expect the stripes on this to be so wide - imagine how wide they'd be on half the stitches in a sock! - but I am going to have enough yarn, which was a small worry in the back of my mind.

I have a couple of candidates for a bottom border to mull over and decide on - she goes back and forth between "I want leaves Mama!" to "Just some pattern is ok". Tough audience! I'm hoping that both of these will join the FO parade in the next week or so, but we all know that predictions like that have a way of blowing up on me. But since I'm not knitting socks at the moment, something else has got to get done, right?
