A Picture Told the Truth!

Last week, on Friday, I posted about the "Shawl in a Day" that, I did manage to finish in a day, but the shawl was too short!  So on Saturday, I wove another one!  I tried several different ways to put the two panels together, and came up with a poncho.  I was pleased as punch with this poncho, that is until I saw the picture of it on  Tuesday's post, as I was modeling it for the weavers.  It was too little!  Luckily I had just basted it together, so I am in the process of marking where the seams are right now, so that I can make some adjustments to make it fit better.  I am afraid that I am going to have to cut off some of the fringe, but I will save it and sew it onto the new and improved poncho.  I have enough yarn left over to add more fringe around the edges to fill in the blanks as well.

I can't wait to get this done, I want to wear it this fall during the Museum of Appalachia's Homecoming!
 In the evenings, I usually sit and knit while we watch Baseball.  This week I took a skein of Madeline Tosh Sock yarn, in the Bluebonnet color way, and made "JJ Scarflette".  It was a fairly quick knit and it was fun to do as well.  Nothing very difficult, I had been warned about a few errors in the pattern, so I made the necessary  changes.
It is an interesting use of garter stitch and eyelet's rows.  It was a free download on Ravelry.  I am also working on a lace wt Cardigan, my second one this year!  I don't have any pictures of that right now, Maybe next week.

I don't have much weaving mojo at the moment, and very little spinning mojo as well,  that has got to change!  It has been a very busy summer full of grandkids and trips, with very little time for weaving and spinning, let's hope that with the return of the school year, I can get back on track.

Until next time, Happy Spinning, Knitting and Weaving, Tina
