I wore my poncho to Dads birthday, way back in June. Dad loved it and asked me to make one for Mum for her birthday. We struck a deal that I would make it, if he paid for some beautiful wool. I bought 6 balls of Sublime - Extra Fine Merino from Thurechts. This wool is lush and is like butter through the fingers. It also has a beautiful lustre to it. It could easily be worn on a cool summer night.
I designed this poncho for a Queensland winter. It is light and a cross between a poncho and a capelet in length. It is the perfect garment to wear as the sun sets and you feel you just need a little something over the shoulders.
Mum loved it as soon as she saw it. She was thrilled that it was Dads idea and really touched that he had put some thought into her birthday.
We had a great day up the coast and went to a lovely restuarant for lunch over looking the beach. Logan decided to stay a couple of nights with Grandma and Pa. This is his first sleep over and he has barely missed us. He has been very busy and is super excited to have caught two fish with Pa on the boat. :D Aimee and I really missed him though and we can't wait to see him this afternoon. However it has been nice having my little girl all to myself and I think she has liked the individual attention too.
This pattern will be ready for testing after Christmas.
