Knitting a poncho
Many years ago, I knitted and crocheted a lot. Over the years, I made sweaters, both cardigans and pullovers, mittens, and afghans of all kinds. Somehow life got cluttered and I got away from it.
About a year ago, I decided I wanted to get back into it because I always loved creating things with yarn. Except that about a year ago is when Bailey entered my life and with a new puppy in the house, there is no time for much else!
Now I'm back into something that brings me a lot of pleasure and softens the blows of the every day world.
I just started the poncho above. I wanted something that I like and that wouldn't be too difficult for someone that hasn't picked up knitting needles in awhile. I probably won't put fringe on it. I'm not a "fringe" person! But that decision can come when I finish working on it.
It was a surprise that I hadn't lost my skills! I bought two books, one for crochet and one for knitting, that I use as a refresher.
I'll post pictures as I progress on this project.
