Over the weekend I was so lucky to be IN A YARN STORE. It's been over a year. We were in a neighboring town doing some shopping with the kids last weekend. My daughter in law fell in love with a knitted poncho sample displayed right when you entered. So of course I bought the pattern and some lovely wool to start a new project for her while I sit in my new house. There is miles of easy stockinette stitch.

I'll have to scrounge around for the yarn tag that I misplaced when I balled up the skein in my super messy studio room. That room is beyond repair. I have too much stuff and no where to put things. That is another post for another day, right?

I finished this shawl weeks ago but had no where to block it because of the move. I love how this turned out and it will be a Christmas gift, I think. I've folded it up and when late fall arrives I'll figure out who get it, me or someone else. I am behind in my Christmas knitting.

What are you working on this week?

  5. I have that poncho pattern but never got around to knitting it. Miles of stockinette are perfect for settling in. I have a hat, a shawl, and socks on the needles. Something for every occasion

  11. I am happy to see you are knitting again. Finding a new yarn shop sounds like so much fun. I knit the Churchmouse Poncho last fall and loved every minute of it. I added a cable down the side to keep it interesting. Christmas knitting - oh boy. I do have one gift tucked away, quite by accident. My daughter said she liked the socks I was knitting when we were visiting in June. I didn't say anything but knit her foot size and they are finished.
