Ogee Tunic Done
I finished the Ogee Tunic last week:
This was a great design to make, but some wording in the pattern threw me off and caused some grief and frogging. If you're making the tunic do go over my notes here. The linked blog post also has more pictures, modification (I added waist shaping and shortened the sleeves), and yarn details... This is the second pattern I made from the book, and look forward to many more!

My Cowl Pullover is knitted from 5 skeins of worsted weight Malabrigo in the marine colourway. I knitted an intermediate between sizes petite and small getting the gauge at needles size 6mm.
I couldn't make the instructions for the cowl work, so I changed it by looking at the photos instead - I think it worked out well.
I was a littled worried about sewing and cutting the cowl, but that worked out nicely, too.
I really like the outcome of my efforts - I must say, that this is another clever pattern from Norah: I like how the integrated sleeve-collar makes this an unusual sweater. Mmmmmm :)
