And one more...

So after finishing Emily's blanket I decided to tackle a trickier pattern. My mother in law, Carole had made a poncho that she thought I would enjoy trying. I thought this would be a perfect birthday present for Ellie.

Now this pattern is not so easy. There were a lot of new abbreviations that I had not done before. But after a little tutorial with Carole, I was on my way. I had a few hiccups, actually had to pull out 6 rows and start over!


So here's a picture of the poncho in the pattern book


I was very happy to find the yarn at Big Lots for $1.50 skein!!! I love a bargain!



Check it out... What do you think?? It's looks pretty similar to the one in the picture...













I also made her a scarf with the "fun fur" so she can use it as a scarf or like boa for dress up. I got some ribbon yarn at Big Lots too - so that's on the list next!
