a quick introduction

Hello everyone! While I was posting in my own blog, I found the Summertime Tunic KAL and I became very excited! You will be my very first KAL! As you can see by my many exclamation marks, I am very excited.

Really, I should stop talking and just show you some pictures:

There is about six inches finished.

I haven't been working on it for days because the mindlessness of it really got to me so I decided to knit a pair of Fetching gloves and I'm working on a pair of socks right now. I've been taking summer classes and I knit during my four hour class (I get about an inch or two finished by the end of the four hours) and that tends to be the only time I'm working on the Summertime Tunic.

I hope you all enjoy! I'll try to work on it some more so I'm not the last one to finish. But I do have a question for all of you reading this. This is a lavender colored cotton yarn, what do you think would be a good color or type of ribbon, thread, etc. to wear with this? Also, I have never washed hand knit cotton items, what is the best way to wash these types of items?

Thank you for any help you will give!

I love that color yarn - maybe a deep purple for the ribbon or a brown or cream? I would try a few colors to see what you think. It's going to be gorgeous.

I'd say a dark purple (maybe in velvet?) or a dark grey. That yarn has a great luster. Love it!
