crochet



i bought this book in a flash on the holidays! i saw the poncho on the front and had to have it. i was vaguely looking for a poncho pattern over winter but never found one that i liked enough. maybe i'll wait 6 months to start on the poncho {even tho the pattern is for a cotton blend} given that it's actually warming up here. in the mean time i have started on this tee. not in white, in a red and orange!! sounds full on don't you think? hoping it'll look ok. i'm planning to adjust the sleeves to more of a cap style if i can figure out how to.

hope you are enjoying your week so far.

i'm not much of a poncho girl but that one looks gorgeous in that color. the tee is kind of sexy ;) i can imagine it being such a staple piece in your wardrobe.
wish i had the patience to knit or crochet anything that ambitious.

What a great find!I love the poncho and the tee.. That tee will look great with a cap sleeve can't wait to see the orange and red...cool!! And a good idea to start the poncho early so you will be able to wear it for next winter!! Yay!

I like that tee very much. I'd love to see how it looks in the red and orange. I can't imagine myself wearing something that bright but it sounds fantastic.

Did you finally make the tee? I have started the sleeves but it doesn't look anything like the picture... I was wondering if you spotted any mistakes? Thanks. Lily
