 I love to wear a Poncho and it comes in handy when I go on those early morning walks with my dog Jesse.  I just put it on and we’re out the door. This poncho is meant to be oversized with a Garter Stitch edge all around and a sweet eyelet stitch pattern in a contrasting color accompanied by the stockinette stitch for the body that gives it that little something special. This is an easy and pleasant knit ending with a garment you will wear for a lifetime.

I wanted to Design a cozy SCARF using a two color stripe pattern where the stripes get wider with each repeat. I figured an eyelet stitch at each color change would be perfect. I have been experimenting with this concept and at last I have the results I wanted.

Half way on my latest Shawl Design.  I wanted to work with different textures for this project and I settled on a Malabrigo Sock, Ito and Shibui combination.  Wool, paper and kid mohair yarns.  It's a Fringe as you go along Design.  Looking forward to it being finished.
