I have two orders of business before I show you my finished object: 1) I've been a little slow going back and replying to your comments for the last couple weeks, but I've done it and I want to thank you (I don't do it often enough) for leaving comments in the first place! I really, really love reading them, especially when you talk about yourselves. 2) I just visited nook. and Rebecca shared that knit designer Laura Aylor is giving away a free pattern to everyone this weekend for her birthday. She has some really great ones (I snatched up Fabrege), so go get one!
You, Me, and the Moon
Pattern: Still Light Tunic by Veera Valimaki
Yarn: DROPS Alpaca in Eco Medium Grey
Needles: US 1 and 2
I started this tunic in the summer, when it was unbearably hot. I finished it within a month, too, but I didn't like how short it was, so I set it aside until I had the time and inclination to revisit it. The time came in December. It took me ages to unpick the sewn bind-off, but the rest came easily. I increased enough stitches to get it to fit over my butt and made it tunic-length. I really like it, though it could probably still be an couple inches longer (as is probably evident in the photos!). I swear I managed to get it an inch or two longer for Christmas mass...hopefully....
I named it after my favorite Magnetic Fields Song.
Now I have to go sew the sleeves into Exeter so I can show you next week! It feels good to finish things, doesn't it? It feels good to start them too! What to start next....
