As soon as Sucrette announced this CAL I was hooked, I love her little poncho pattern and it was already on my to do list. I have already been making poncho's with knitted squares as you all know but I haven't actually made one from scratch for a while. I do like poncho's and they have certainly made a comeback here in the UK, however I have never considered making one for myself and I intended just making some to send on to Loving Hands.
I have already made a start on the first one. I love these colours and I think that they combine nicely together, nice and bright for a sweet little girl.
Then I came across this yarn,
it's been in my stash for ages, someone donated it to me, it has no label on it so I don't even know what kind of yarn it is. it's like a soft snugly mohair and it's not at all scratchy, so a little thought sprang into my mind last night just as I was about to drop off to sleep, I could make a poncho for myself with this yarn, it would be lovely to wear on cool summer evenings even if I was just sitting on my patio, better than a shawl that would just slip off my shoulders, and it would leave my hands free to crochet. So with much trepidation and quite a bit of excitement ( I have never owned a poncho before) I have begun the poncho crocheting process with great determination lol
If you haven't joined Sucretts CAL already there is still time to join in.
Have a great weekend everyone :)
