FO - Tunic for myself :)
I started knitting in January this year after a friend showed me a few knitted scarves and since then i have finished a few projects. This site was the first site that got me started knitting. The videos were very helpful and easy to follow. I have had lots of help too from reading the posts here

Here is one of my projects - a tunic that I wore once - the colour was picked out by my husband. I found the pattern in Magknits. I did follow part of it but along the way changed a bit here and there ...

The link to the pattern online is

tunic
The tunic is very pretty and quite ambitious for a new knitter--WTG!

Well, we don't go out much (most of the time to buy groceries) and stay at home most of the time. We go out on weekends when husband has gigs. He's an entertainer and I sort of assist him and we have costumes.
