I've officially decided to frog my tunic.  I got all the way up to wear you split for the front and back and I finally decided that it was just too big and frumpy for me.  I think it looks really cute on all the girls that posted it, but it just isn't flattering on me at all.  I hate to rip out so much knitting time (18" of knitting!) but I know I won't wear it. 

I think I'm going to use the yarn to knit a more fitted top down sweater.

Here is my finished tunic, after blocking and adding the ribbon. It looks ok from the front, but I'm unhappy with the back. I wish I had made it a bit smaller.


Pls excuse the crappy hair/no makeup. I took the pic before going to bed Wink

More pics on my blog, if interested.

I am so excited. It is my 1st garment, my 1st project in the round and only my 4th FO.

The yarn is Elann Sonata and the color is Pecan. I made the smallest size and used 5 balls.
