Just a couple of quickie projects between my big ones. A chilly, overcast, cold day inspired the poncho made out of Little Mamma by Estelle. The yarn is like a really thick chenille wrapped in eyelash. Supa easy pattern, just knit two 25 st. rectangles, on 15mm needles. Voila, wrapped in a blanket to ward off the chilly mornings.
What started as a rough draft for a pattern turned into a project. I wanted to make my daughter a shrug out of worsted weight. She loved the colours and wanted me to finish it. Which meant the second ball had to be found on E-Bay and travelled all the way from the States. But as you can tell from her smile she loves it.
It was tweeked as I worked, just as all good patterns are. She decided that she wanted to bottom to hang over the back of her hands...and then to wrap around her thumb. *shrugs* OK....it that is what she is coming up with at 11 then I am curious to see her fashion choices when she is 16-17.
