I did it! Today I finished my poncho!
My sister-in-law permitted me to use the model of her poncho. So nice of her! Thank you Loeska πŸ˜‰
The first time I saw her wearingΒ  it, I envied her, you know πŸ™‚
The colours are different though.
Turquoise and purple are my favorite colours and I used red to brighten it up, but I already mentioned
that in one of my previous blogposts.
The fringes form a nice band at the bottom….(the way I braided them)…. I think πŸ˜‰

The collar is knitted separately and sewed with the machine to the neck-piece

I have been busy making a warp for my poncho.
The yarn I intended to use was very thin, compared to my own spun weft.
What to do….I decided to make a cabled yarn. I had never done that…..a real challenge it was.
Then I dyed the yarn and now I am threading the loom. First step done……
