Bonsai Tunic off the needles

I finished the Bonsai tunic and am very pleased with the result. I wore it all day today.

The pattern is by Norah Gaughan from Spring 2007 Interweave knits. I knitted it in Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool. I did modify the pattern to eliminate the waist shaping (!) and I left out the belt. I also finished the sleeves with a crochet edging rather than the 3 row knitted edging.
It was a quick and easy knit, although I did make a mistake in the front that I didn't notice until much later, and as a expedient knitter, decided that as I had not noticed, neither will anyone else. I anticipate that it will get quite a lot of wear.
ps eagle eyed observers will have noticed our new compost bin behind me :-)
