Poncho

Things have been a little hectic in life at the moment. I am at the end of finishing my master's degree in cyber security. I only have three classes to go. I am also very concerned about my parents health. My mom has cronic back pain and my dad has Parkinson's disease which is further complicated by dementia. My mom can no longer take care of him and we are in the process of finding a nursing facility for him.

So anyway, I am working on this black poncho during fellowship time while the grandchildren are in Sunday School.

Poncho

This poncho is a work in progress.

I am using 4 skeins of Caron cakes to make this poncho. This yarn is not that cheap, I used my Michaels gift card I got for Christmas (from my darling husband). Cheaper versions of worst weight could be used.

As you can see it is just a large granny square with a hole in the middle. I am not following any specific pattern to make this.

Scarf


I finished up another Knitted Scarf. This is the same as the last one I did that was a repeat the same one row pattern.

As a reminder, here is the pattern again:

After casting on a number of stitches dividable by 4, it is slip one purlwise, knit in back loop, purl, knit, [knit, knit in back loop, purl, knit] repeat in brackets until the end.

One Row Knitted Scarf


As the name implies, only one row of the same pattern is repeated to make this scarf.

After casting on a number of stitches dividable by 4, it is slip one purlwise, knit in back loop, purl, knit, [knit, knit in back loop, purl, knit] repeat in brackets until the end.

That is it. I also like that it is reversible. I will likely give this scarf away and donate it back to my church, since I got the yarn free from my church.

I love This Bag


This has to be my favorite felted bag to date. The bag was crocheted and the handle is knitted icord.

The yarn was really delicate, I would consider it roving that could be spun. The brand name is Noro, the really awesome yarn that comes from Japan.
The downside is that there is no pocket for my smartphone, it is necessary to have a spot for my phone.

Finished Shawl

After starting this project months ago, I finally finished it.



This shawl is made using a combination of afghan stitch and double crochet. Though I really can't call it a shawl, it is to short. I ran out of yarn. So I will likely use it as a lapghan. It is rather chilly sitting at my desk.

I hope everyone is having a good holiday season so far. Working on my master's degree has seriously put a damper on my crochet and knitting time. I am looking to be done by August 2017.
