Coffee Tunic by Mira Saarentaus, was originally written in Finnish so it was hard to understand in places… but I do love the finished product. Just remind me never to knit a tunic in a sport weight yarn again. Seriously, the pattern calls for size 2 and 2 1/2 needles. What was I thinking? I am glad to finally have it off my needles so I can focus on some new projects!

I've taught a few friends the basics of knitting in the past, but none of them have ever really stuck with it. So when a good friend asked me if I'd teach her, I expected similar results. We ended up setting up a weekly knitting get together and invited several more friends. After a few months, there are only four of us still getting together, but that means I now officially have THREE knitting friends!!! Yay!
One of my friends made a 86-10 Headband in Alaska for her first project. We all loved it so much, we decided to make a knit-along of it and all worked on one together. I really need to get a picture of all four of us in our headbands. It's so much fun to finally have friends to knit with!
