Apparently I was in a finishing mood yesterday because I decided to take out my Cloud Poncho and seam it.
I don’t like how this poncho looks on me, but it’s probably my own fault. The pattern called for knitting a rectangle. I’m a small person so I shrunk the dimensions of the rectangle. I think I should have put more thought into how much I shrunk it. Like I should have decreased the length of the rectangle even more and decreased the width less because I think it looks too long in the front and too short in the back. I don’t think I’ll be knitting another poncho for awhile…if ever again!
Today I also decided to start working on the Cloud Poncho from Crystal Palace’s pattern site. It’s done in the “mistake rib” pattern. I’m using Elann’s Peruvian Collection Highland Chunky instead of Crystal Palace yarn. I do hope I’m knitting it correctly. It looks ribbed without being all scrunched up, right??? =) What threw me was the very last instruction for the row — “turn”. I’m assuming this means to turn the needle the way I normally would if I were knitting a scarf on straight needles, right?
