In the beginning of July I posted my project picks for “A Year of Projects” (aka YOP).
I listed Nerd Girl Yarns Hull Poncho.
Who knew that finding affordable size 19 circular needles locally would be near impossible?
I’m always fascinated that it is actually less expensive for me to order from a UK based site and have it shipped to good ole USA than it is to order from a US based company or a chain store such as Joannes.
So, that is what I did and my needles are making their transatlantic journey.
In the meantime, I decided to test out the pattern.
I only wanted to use one skein of yarn (Buttercream Collection Alpaca Solids) so I made Miss ME a poncho.
Yes, I know, we will have matching ponchos!
The pattern was very easy and the yarn was soft and easy to work with.
I love chunky yarn and big needles!
As a new knitter, it makes me feel so accomplished to finish a project quickly.
For mine, I plan on doing a color block with grey and purple.
I could have made her’s a little bigger, but why use up some of the other skein of yarn for something she’ll probably wear for 2 minutes and whip off?
Happy Knitting & Crocheting!
