  • So Cute Your Heart Just Might Crack: Celia’s Poncho

    And it’s not even my own kid. Usually when I think a kid is so cute my heart could burst, it’s because it’s Reed. I do have a few exceptions, however. Like Celia. This young lady is going places. At the ripe old age of six. Celia needed a new poncho. Auntie to the rescue. …

  • Sheltered Poncho — Off the Needles!

    One of the joys of living in (far) northern California are the occasional warm, winter beach days. Brief windows of heaven between storms. IF we are lucky. I’ve been complaining so much lately about how frigid it has been…and how cold I feel All. The. Time. Then I looked at the thermometer and realized it …

  • On Why Knitting Makes Me Fat

    Hazards of knitting (besides sitting on a pointy knitting needle and bleeding to death): Decide to knit BIG poncho and buy 10 skeins of Really Expensive Yarn. Surely 1300 yards (1189 meters) oughta do it. Or at least that’s what the pattern says. Buying expensive yarn = stress. Eat chocolate. Knit and knit and knit …

  • The Poncho, Baby

    Or maybe it’s a wrap. Either way. It’s done. Now, I’ll be honest. This is my first “poncho.” I kinda cheated. It’s a seamed rectangle. This may or may not technically qualify as a poncho. Call it will you will. I like it. It’s like a shawl. That you don’t have to wrap around and …

  • This is Going to Take Forever

    This poncho is going to take forever. As in: possibly to be finished by 2050. Although things are progressing with more gusto now that I finally settled on the final number of stitches to cast on. First there was a wee bit of 120 stitches. Too many? Frog. Then there was a second go using …
