Poncho

Well, I got tired of making little pot holders over and over (I'm making an afghan) and decided that I needed to step out of my comfort zone, so I made M a poncho. ("Is this my poncho, mama? It's so pretty")

I used Lion Brand Velvetspun yarn (which is REALLY, REALLY soft) and trimmed it with Fun Fur yarn. It went together fairly quickly and I'm very pleased with the finished result.

I now am trying to get brave enough to make a robot but I think I'll need some help from my neighbor since the patterns are incredibly complex.

So for the time being, I'm going to go back to making little pot holders till I'm brave enough. I have a lot of pot holders to make: 63 in all. I only have 12 of them done, so I have a lot to do. To be fair, each square is a different crochet pattern, so I'm actually learning new techniques as I make each one.

this is SO cute! I am so "unhandy", I envy anyone that can use their hands, especially to do something so nice. My daughter would love this.

Let everyone know if you do the robots, they're awesome.
