..catching a breath ..

So... Jacey's Poncho is finished... washed and blocking this afternoon. Since we're not getting the COWBOYS game on CBS, I've got time to contemplate another project. I know... nod-nod-nod, I've still got some socks on the needles, and I've got some patterns "on-hold-to-order', and various things I could be working on.

I've been asked about Jacey's poncho:

1. How did it come about that you've already made her a second poncho when she's only 6 months old?

2. How did you come up with the design/pattern?

A: (1); Kelley recently said on the phone that the first one seemed small, that it only reached the middle of Jacey's arms.... seemed ODD to me, as when I made that one, I thought it was big, and she might not be able to wear it until after she was a year old! (Still seems odd to me!) So, I decided to make another, bigger poncho. Don says THIS one is HUGE, he envisions her at 4 and 'swimming' in it.... methinks so TOO! {perhaps Kelley is putting it on Jacey sideways? I wonder?}

A: (2); Ponchos are simple-simple-simple. This one, and all I make, is/are knit on circ's, top down. If you ask me NICELY, I'll probably share the pattern.

Today is my cousin Fran's 30th Wedding Anniversary~HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, Fran and Andy!

I'm in the mood to work on more socks, more moebius, some scarves, and some Faroese shawls. I really need to shop for yarn, as my stash is earmarked for 'other things'; IE: gifts, lapghans, etc.

I've been busy on-line, as well. The KnitPICKERS Cafe` (forum) and The KnittingAround Cafe` (forum) are again re-attracting the members 'lost' in the host/server move, and I'm helping out at the Socknitters forum AND now the Knitted-Lace forum.
