Update on Poncho

20151111_102319It was a bit of a struggle to get it going but, I finally got it working. I tried the magic loop method and I just could not get it to work. I got the right needles and its a slow go now with all the increases but it is getting there. I am able to read my work and that is helping.

I used 8 ply white to give the neck more stability and have changed over to the hand spun for now. It is amazing to work with and I like it.

The lady who hired me gave me creative freedom and I have gone for it.

More photos soon


New projects

2013-12-07 21.09.05Morning,

some projects are done and on the way to new homes and others are just starting.

I got hired to do a project and I am happy to say this is what was finally chosen : http://verypink.com/2013/12/20/rodeo-drive-poncho/        It was originally suppose to be a sweater but after a good chat and all this was the final choice. I may have to add some yarn to it to finish it off but it will be a great knit. It is quick and I can manage in the time I have. Project to be delivered on the 15th of December.  My daughter has decided to put in an order for this one also.

I have some scarf orders but they are fun ones.  letters are words are the next challenge. More on this one soon

I finished my shawl and am really please. Not sure what my next project will be.

I have been taking a break but now its time to get back to it. I need to feel busy and useful. . . .  and creative
