Finished Poncho and Neckwarmer!

I decided last night would be the night  to finish up the poncho and neckwarmer. Two more gifts done! Yea, me!

I thought Jessica should have a turn modeling the poncho (since she is patiently waiting for Mommy to make hers).100_5292

It's not the best photo, but you can definitely see the colors I chose for this one. I used just the variegated yarn for the fringe and I think that was a good choice. I cut the yarn for Amy's fringe individually and that's partly why I was taking so long to do the fringe for this one. I realized though, that wrapping the yarn around a DVD movie case (width-wise) would net the perfect length after cutting the hanks in half. That cut down the amount of time needed to get that fringe cut. Why I didn't think of it while doing Amy's I have no idea!


Both girls wanted to show off the neckwarmer, so enjoy my little models:

  You can see how long this project is this way. It is sized for an adult of course. But aw heck, aren't they cute?

I feel pretty good that I am making some progress on my projects.

I've got lots of things I want to get done today, so I'll close for now. I'll be back if I manage to complete anything worth sharing.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a great day!

Very cute poncho - love the color! The neckwarmer is really pretty, too. Those things are great to look at and so practical, too. As for your models, they couldn't be sweeter! Thanks for sharing.
