yup – new project

16 Apr

but getting a little older…. i’ve been knitting away at this the last few weeks, but had to put it aside for a bit while figuring out how to finish it off. the pattern is from vogueknitting’s knit.1 spring issue- striped tunic. but i couldn’t find the yarn with the right gauge so i’ve pretty much been recalculating the whole pattern. i also decided to knit the most part in the round where the pattern calls for flat knitting. this process is quite educational! i’m hoping this sweater/dress will be this summer’s favorite that i’m hoping for!🙂

    Wow, great job! My mom is making this for my 17yo daughter, with blue/lighter blue, green, yellow, pink and white. I can’t wait to see it, when it’s all finished. I thought all the knit.1 projects were rather cute! My younger daughter (15), just decided to pick up knitting. She only just revealed this to the rest of us. She did make a dishcloth for me!

    […] Jul 11th, 2007 by snella to present my finished striped tunic! i am very happy with it as it fits perfectly. as you might have read in a previos post, i used thicker yarn and knitted it in one piece to get me out of all the seaming in the end, so it was a bit of a brainer.  i’ve worn it several times in the week and a half that it’s been done i used 13 skeins of yarn, for more info on yarn and pattern see the previos post.
