The Beachcomber Tunic... completed and on!
As stated in previous posts, I've worn it a couple of times now and LOVE it! The yarn, after washing and blocking, has become softer and cozier than I would have thought. It's lightweight, yet quite warm. I suppose it's the alpaca that gives it the warmth.
If you are considering making this top, keep in mind that wool has a lot of "play". The top was a touch on the small side when it came off the needles, but blocking it was magic. If you're using an acrylic or cotton yarn, knit it a touch bigger perhaps.
Incidentally, I never did get John to take pictures; he's just been too busy or too preoccupied. As for pinning him down, well... that's up to your own imagination.
