…. and this is me wearing my tunic…

Sorry,but I always have problems in taking photos of myself… the above one is one of the best I took today…

I have to be honest and say that this is not what I meant when I started to knit my garment… I wanted something more womanly but, on the contrary, I crafted a super casual long waistcoat… perfect for everyday life but which do not tell me anything at all …. maybe I’m just judging my work too hard but I could do better than that indeed.. at last, since we have snow here, it will keep me warm… 🙂

Since I was quite desperate about my knitting lately I decided that it’s high time to try a new method, the TOP DOWN KNITTING … I have never tried to knit that way and have to follow some tutorials and patterns found online. It seems to me that garments knitted that way look more elegant so… I have some cotton yarn at mine which I’d bought a long time ago and which seems quite suitable for this kind of project.. do you tried to knit that way? Have you any advice for me? Please, let me know, it will speed up my learning phase quite a lot ….

Thank you so much for your kind words during my recent knitting delirium… you were all so sweet and encouraging that I really do not know how to thank you properly…. all your words touch me so deeply and make me work more and harder.

Thank you

  1. It has been a pleasure to follow along on your journey to knit this tunic. Thank you so much for sharing! I know firsthand how hard it can be to accept a garment that hasn’t turned out how you expected after hours and hours of knitting. It’s so frustrating. I have a sleeveless top that I knit a year or so ago and I haven’t yet decided what to do with it. So I say kudos to you! Because your tunic looks lovely and comfy. You have inspired me to give my top a second chance. 🙂 Lots of love and hugs to you. Stay warm!

    1. I have baked a good Italian cheesecake a few hours ago and there’s a piece of it heading straight to you!With a cup of tea,of course! Could we forgot tea…. no,for God’s sake!! Thanks,Jennifer,your words cheered me up and for you and all the kind person who supported me all these day I will wear that tunic as often as possible!! Lots of love and warm hugs!!

      1. I could use a slice of your Italian cheesecake right about now. I bet it is divine! If only I could just hop across the ocean and knock on your door. I am glad I was able to send you some good cheer, my friend. Wear that tunic with pride!
