It's not the best picture, but I'm just glad that I was finally able to upload it  Grin Like I said previously, my comp has been going crazy, so it's taken forever to get this picture up.

I love it though! This tunic was incredibly cost-effective. Total, I used about 4 1/2 balls of elann sonata. I spent $11 including the 2 balls that I didn't use. I've never had a shirt that was so cheap! I'm planning on wearing it tomorrow to go wedding dress shopping, and hopefully it'll wear as well as I think.

I'm excited about washing this. Sonata fares incredibly well in the wash (and even in the dryer!), and a bit of fabric softener does wonders on it. So soft!

Anybody else have comments to make? It seems this knitalong has come to a standstill.

yours is gorgeous! mine on the other hand is at a standstill, i made it to the arm hole shaping on the back and realized that it was going to be HUGE on me, the lace part is the perfect size so i need to figure a way to decrease once i get past the ribbing into the smaller size

Mustaches are sooo 2 years ago

That is gorgeous!  Love the colour.  I have so much Sonata in my stash, but I didn't think I'd get gauge.  I'm almost done mine, I'm at picking up the stitches at the armhole, and I hate doing that!  Hopefully I'll get around to doing it this weekend when I have more time.

Wow fragolina! That is so beautiful!! I saw it in the mag and I was thinking "eh..." but now that I see it on you and I want to make it so bad! Can I ask you what size you made?

*Blush* You girls are so sweet!

superstitch- Why don't you just keep using the smaller needles from the middle to knit up the back? Or, you could always forgo the increases after the waist. Whichever you choose, I just hope you finish it and get to enjoy all of the knitting time that you've put into it already.

lilacbutterfly- I didn't really get gauge with sonata. In fact, I was a bit under. It worked to my advantage though.

caflygrl- I didn't really make a "size". The smallest size was too big, so I followed most of the increases and decreases, but with fewer sts. If you want to know more of the specifics of what I did, you can PM me, and I'll tell you. I just don't want to clutter up the knitalong with a page full of specifics.  Wink

ok, after almost a year of really wanting to knit this, here goes!

i, too, am using sonata in some green color. i forget. unfortunately i'm knitting for my sister in law and its a surprise, so gauge will be an educated guess. i'm hoping i'll get a random phone call saying she hates green so i can keep it for myself. i think a few more months at the gym will help it look good on me.

anyone else not too distracted by other projects care to embark?

by the way, i had never ordered from elann and was afraid it was all novelty yarn upon first glance, but let me tell you people, i got a HUGE box yesterday with amazing yarn for 7 different projects for under $100, including yarn for a sweater for DH.

i am an elann convert. i love all of this stuff. maybe i should start an elann fan post.
