Well, the back is done on the tunic; it was a pretty simple knit-straight-up until it is the right length, with no shaping. The colors look OK so far so I am going to go ahead and knit the front. This should go even quicker because part way up, the middle section of stitches get put on a holder and just the two sides get knit to the full length to match the back. I kept track of how many rows I knit for the back so I can have an exact match for the front. So far, so good.
