While shopping in town today I have seen ponchos on sale in at least 2 different retailers. Why am I excited about this? Well as a woman in posession of a large stash of yarn and in need of a new project what could be better?
I was given my first poncho in 1973 (hand crocheted by my Grandma) and I am fairly sure I was still wearing it in 1976 with my hot pants whilst toting my clackers. My hot pants cut me in half but my faithful poncho kept me warm as toast and was amazingly resilient when I was car sick on it.
I remember making myself a grown up one when Martha Stewart (whoever she was) left prison wearing one. I wore it as Spring outerwear and felt like a proper Charlie. Oh my goodness how embarrassing. Still I think the young people may look ok in them. There are so many lovely ones on Rav.
I like this one very much, the construction is simple yet has impact. Granny stripes would work well too I think.
This is my effort, now consigned to the “what was I thinking” file.
Oh dear maybe not then.
