Finished Tunic


Pattern: Knitting Pure and Simple Children's Tunic
Yarn: Treliske Organic Merino in Dark Brown
This was a quick and easy pattern to knit. I made a few simple changes - the biggest is that it's just an open v-neck, no buttons. i also decided not to do the drawstring as i though it would never be used. the trickiest thing was picking up the stitches for the hood, which i did distinctively poorly. Really I should have done this on size 6 needles, not 7's or 8's or whatever size those were. the fabric is just a little too open. but the drape is beautiful, a lovely hand that seems to soften with wear and my little boy is happy to wear it.

Sign-ups are going on for the next round of the Knitters Tea Swap. Out of all the recent organized swaps that I participated in, this and Backtack III were the best. Well, since these are the only swaps where I actually received something in return it isn't saying much. But nevertheless, I like tea. I like yarn. I like treats. This is a good swap for me.

I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed right now with working full-time, running the soap business, parenting and still trying to find time to pursue other relaxing hobbies. Something will have to give - but I can't give any of these up right now. With holidays and a busy work schedule for the next few months i don't know what is going to happen...

Oh, I really love this tunic, what a great job you did with it - and your little model seems to be very happy with it too ;)
Thanks for sharing the link to the tea swap, this sounds like such a lot of fun!

Hey there!

Sorry to hear about all the stress. Hopefully a little more tea, treats and yarn will help improve the mood and the spirits.

Hang in there! I know you will pull through this!
