My mother hinted the other day that she was tired of seeing the same post so I figured it was time to pull my socks (handknit, of course) up and get something posted.
Actually this post carries on from the last post. I have done a number of other projects since the last post, way, way, way, long ago, but I can't show all of them because some are gifts and some because of other reasons.
But for this post, I show this:
Yes, the yarn came out a little bulkier than I'd originally anticipated but that's okay. It's going to be cozy warm and I really like the idea of having more use out of it as a poncho than I might have had with a sweater. I think, too, as a poncho, it won't have as much wear and tear, with accompanying pilling, as it might as a sweater.
That's what I've told myself anyway.
The plan as it stands right now is to do a wide border similar to this sample, then a large band of fair isle and then this sort of striping around the neck.
