I hope y'all are not getting bored with my crochet projects. ;) It seems to be the only thing I have time to finish lately. I take my crochet/knitting bag with me almost everywhere I go, that I'll have a chance to sit down for a while.
I finished this little girl's poncho today. I just started another one for the same lady who asked me to make this one.

I remember when I tried to get started making one of those. Yours looks goood. Are the instructions something I could find online and is it something a non crochette crafter could do.

Lori, you're just cranking them out, aren't you? I really admire you accomplishing so much. Sewing projects I do quickly but other needlework takes me for.....ev.....er!

I am glad to hear that ponchos are back in for this winter.. I have an acrylic hooded poncho that I got as a Christmas present from the EX back in the 70's sometime. It is a red plaid and sooooo warm. It closed with tubular buttons and loops of suede, so in the meantime those loops had hardened so I removed them. The snaps all came off from the front, so I sewed one snap in place about 7 inches down from the neckline, and at the neckline, I ewed a big button and used a ponytail circlet for the loop. After cutting the metal part off. It is so warm and It still looks really good. I call it my dog bed, but I do love it for quick trips etc.. I can drive with it on and it does not bother me like a heavy coat does. I wear mine every winter , but this year I am in style... LOL

Libby, I have a coat that my mother bought for me when I was 16 years old. I keep it to wear when it snows here and I need something to play around in. It's reversible, and still looks pretty good. I just can't bring myself to throw it out. I have a picture of me wearing it when DH and I were on a date many, many years ago.

Today I was asked if I could make 3 more shawls before Christmas. This is on top of 2 others already ordered, plus the little poncho I'm working on. :anxious: A friend also asked me to make her a couple of knotted scarves a month or so ago. Since then I've sold over 40 of them. It's just 10 foot lengths of various textured yarns, knotted about every 10". Some of them I braided instead of knotting. People are going nuts over them. If I have time the weekend after Thanksgiving, DD and I are going to try to make several dozen to sell at a Christmas festival in our town.

Okay, I took a pic of the super simple scarves so y'all could see what I'm talking about.
