poncho for paulina

My friend Wendy gave birth to baby Paulina at the beginning of February, so I decided to knit her a little poncho. I think she’s going to have to grow into it, but that’s okay. I used Lion Brand Cotton Ease and got the pattern from the poncho generator, which is the coolest thing ever! I don’t know how pleased my model is, though:

It was a beautiful day today, and the Hedster and I enjoyed some sunshine and wave watching at the beach. We also visited the Ball & Skein, the only yarn store in the entire county. We didn’t buy anything, but we spent plenty of time in there staring at and touching yarn. There were these tiny little balls of angora that I so wanted (a project down the line is an fuzzy T-shirt sweater), but you’d need a gazillion to make anything, and you know how that goes. I am now on the hunt for the discontinued Cascade Indulgence, thanks to Rachael, who introduced it to me. Anyone know where I can find some?

    Cute Poncho!
    Did The Thready Bears run out of Indulgence or are you looking for a specific color? The bears are my source for Indulgence.

    I just saw the other day on ebay 10 skeins of indulgence going for around $35 or so. Trythereas you are sure to get enough to make the tshirt. BTW where did you find a pattern for it as wanna make one and can’t find a good pattern for it.
    Love your witty blog

    oh i love your little cup sleeves on magknits – cute, and hilarious!! i gotta make one.
    also, i was at thready bear central in dec./jan. and i was gurgling over the indulgence when i think it was matt came by and said “they’re discontinuing it” frxxx what?! but he went on to explain they’re discontinuing it as is in the 100g (is that right?) and re-introducing it in 50g skeins – i think that’s right. so it doesn’t FEEL so expensive i guess. dunno, ask them!

    Hey – saw your coffeecup holders on Magknits!!! Congratulations! They are going to be seen everywhere from now on. Cute poncho, cute dog. I don’t know if he/she likes pink though, from the expression on his/her face.

  15. Marcia says:

    I also guessed which pattern was yours without peeking. Those java holders be very very cool. This is sooo exciting!

    Love the cutie patootie poncho! Thanks for the poncho making link, want to make my girls one each. Ahh angora.. I loved it so much I bought 5 angora rabbits to feed my habit. Love spinning it. You can sometimes find it reasonable on ebay and if not email me and I will pass on the addy of a breeder/spinner I know who sells it. Canadian too so your dollar is worth more ;)
