It's a FO!

And, no, it's not the Navy kind, thank goodness!

The neckdown pullover tunic is finished! It's really finished, with the ends woven in and everything. This is the first adult-sized sweater I have ever knit, and it's mine, I tell you, all mine! Mwuhahaha!

My new tunic is knit from the top down in the round and has raglan sleeves. It is a Knitting Pure and Simple pattern, and it contains miles and miles of stockinette stitch. If I ever make this again, I am definitely going to include some kind of pattern to end the monotony. Okay, so tunics aren't so fashionable, but let me tell you, it is truly comfy! It will be the perfect fall sweater for curling up with my knitting, a good movie, and some hot cocoa!

Now I am off to pay attention to the black socks or to the Alpaca stole (the Alpaca is grouchy because I have been ignoring it in favor of the sweater). Before I go, check out this item which is trying to worm its way into my queue: The Weasley Sweater. The kids are on a Harry Potter kick, and I may do a Molly Weasley and knit them some sweaters for Christmas. Don't worry! I'll ask before I make one in maroon.

Congratulations on your blog! It's very complete for being so very new.

I'm here by way of the Limenviolet forum.

I really like the tunic you made- and I checked out that line of patterns and like them a lot! COngratulations on your blog- I only got mine a few months back and it is so addictive and a fun way to show off your knitting. :)

I LOVE the tunic ... it might be miles of stockinette & put you right to sleep in the middle but I think the drape of it is what makes this...nice!
