True to my nature, I made the Modern Tunic again. I used Schoppel Wolle Linen Los, 4 balls in the darkest color, and a partial ball of the natural color for the pocket linings. Linen Los is fantastic--a three seasons yarn. This is modified from the first one that I knit, with more decreases so it isn't as loose on the top. I finished it in time to wear to TNNA, where I went all goofy for the designer, Lori Versaci. I wore both tunics I made for her. I am obsessing about the new designs that she's done for Shibui this fall. I'm also stalking Julie Hoover's designer page on Ravelry, waiting for her new Shibui designs. I am going to be knitting a lot in Pebble and Cima this season.
I like to think that I put some effort into dressing appropriately for a professional event in my industry. I was a little surprised to see how some (or one) put no effort at all into dressing or grooming for any of her book signing appearances at the show. When I did signings for my book, I bought new wardrobe, and had new hair and mani/pedi, etc. This woman consistenly looked like she just rolled out of bed. It was a source of amusement for me.
In my personal wardrobe knitting, I am working on another sweater in Linen Los. I used the leftover white from this tunic, and purchased more to complete the sweater, which is knit from the bottom up. There is a slight color difference in the whites which I hope won't be too noticeable in the garment, or I can rationalize it as a design feature. I'm also working on an accessory pattern for the store to offer during this year's yarn crawl, using more Linen Los.
