The Long Awaited Bohemian Tunic

Blocking the Bohemian Tunic on the guest bed.  The alpaca yarn was so incredibly wonderful to work with.  
Not the best picture of me or of the tunic, but you get the idea
I have to lose some weight, definitely not photographing well these days.  I didn't block the arms quite long enough, but there is a lot of stretch in them, so next time I was it I will do a better job of measuring the arms when I lay it out to dry.
I wore the tunic to work and then to knitting, tried to get some better pictures of it.  This one without flash helps to show how deep the color really is.  I love the heathered color.  Ember was a perfect name for this color.

The pattern was super simple to follow, ragland sleeves are now my absolute favoritest kind of sleeves.  I hate sewing, so I love that this whole tunic is made in the round and the only seems are a few under arm stitches.  Once I got back to work on it after its one year stint in hibernation the whole thing went really fast.  I would definitely recommend this pattern to anyone looking for something a little different but still pretty easy.  

Sorry it took me so long to blog on this!  I know some of you have been wondering about it since I bought the pattern and yarn about 3 years ago.  Sheesh, has it really been that long?!?  Wowzers.
