My Christmas Treat

I was on a mission last week: work on Shopping Tunic, and boy did I work on it. I had this yarn in my stash for a long time, had purchased Twinkle's Big City Knits a long while ago so I've always been set to make this... I unfortunately just kept putting it off. So, I casted on on the Tuesday night (Nov 20th) and finished weaving in ends on the Sunday afternoon (Nov25th). I'm planning on making another one.. but not anytime soon... a) because there are so many other projects I want to start and complete and b) it just isn't the time of year to wear it out. It's currently one degree celsius outside. I did however create this to wear for Christmas day, whatever indoor event will be happening.. still unsure.

Pattern: Shopping Tunic by Wenlan Chia
Materials: Rowan's Big Wool Fusion in Soot (4 skeins)
Needles: Denise US 19
Source: Twinkle's Big City Knits
Started and Completed: Nov 20th to Nov 25th 2007

Next project to cast on: Danica using Paton's SWS (a not surprising yarn choice). First venture into entrelac. I'm excited!

Lovely! I love the simple lines of this tunic and that yarn is pretty.

Still haven't made it, though, I have slight doubts of usability of a sleeveless bulky knit. How and when are you planning to use it?
