I love this cabled poncho. I really do--but it just won't work for me. So I've decided to rework the pattern to instead be a wrap-around shawl. It may take me a couple of weeks, but I'm going to do it, hell or high water. I picked up some more yarn yesterday, and have been working away at bags as well, but I feel it's time to make myself something I truly love, and something that would be useful--especially in the Bay Area, with it's cool weather mornings and warm afternoons.
Keep your eye on the blog for progress photos and updates, and of course, pictures of fancy bags. A small taste of what's to come in the next week:
- Beaded shell-stitched bags
- The pattern meltdown of 2012, or how I reworked the cabled poncho into a cabled wrap (for crochet!)
- Knit Picks double-pointed needle reviews (for knitters)
- More on the April's Army charity shop
