Summertime Tunic Repeat

I love the Summertime Tunic by Katie Himmelberg/IK Summer 2007 - its so comfortable and with that I casted on for another one. A few knitters used variegated yarn and I loved the way theirs came out - Check-out Knitters Delight and Yarn Fettish and since I'm a lover of it, it was only natural to cast on using Bernat Softee Baby Solid & Prints - for the drop-waist part I used a solid blue for contrast and a baby blue ribbon - I also crocheted along the top and armhole openings. By doing the tunic a second time I learned to do crochet bind off, which is easier and neat. Well on to my next project.

Sheila said...

Thank You for the compliments. I had to fight with myself to keep for casting on for another one...lol. Instead I casted on for the Ballet T-Shirt, which Adrienne did, but I got to row 15 and it looked totally busted... so I ripped it out and will try again.. *sigh*

I loved how you just zipped thru this one! I remember when you did your Something Tunic :op
Everyone keeps talking about how it is a boring knit b/c of all the stockinette but you make me want to knit one up too! B/c I keep hearing how comfy it is!

Great job Sheila!

Good for you! After all the issues you had the first time it's awesome that you revisited the pattern! I bet you're feeling really confident about conquering this one! And you should!

Love the top! Again, I can't believe that you've taught yourself to knit and that you are turning out such wonderful garments so quickly...pea green with envy...yeah that's me!
