In short -- What was I thinking?!!! Love all the colors; they're my favorites. But I am a woman who should never wear horizontal stripes, particularly on a tunic (theoretically hip-length) and certainly not stripes that are anything but muted! It looked so cute on the model on the pattern. That must be it.
So, this was to be a turtleneck tunic. I found the completed front, back and sleeves. Basically, just had to finish the t-neck and sew it together, so I was pretty close. Not sure why I put it down, but I did!
After conferring with friends Suzanne and Kate, it was determined that this should never be a tunic sweater. I think I'll probably felt it and make placemats or coasters, maybe a tea-mat or a purse... of maybe, just maybe...
Yes! A cat bed! My orange boy seems to like it! And heaven knows, orange cats and navy sofas require something in-between!
