So, I unpicked the neck edging and added some extra rows, to bring the poncho further up onto Annabelle's shoulders. I made an opening at the back so it would still easily fit over Annabelle's head, and I moved the flower up a little.
I was so pleased with my efforts that I decided to crochet another poncho and cap for Annabelle. This time I used a twisted double-treble (twisted treble for US readers) stitch for the body of the poncho and cap. I made this one shorter at front and back.so it is more like a little cape than a poncho. Because I like making flowers, I added a rose to this set too.
I have promised my friend another beanie once she decides on a colour, and I may make one for myself. And I have a yen to make a little summer dress for Annabelle's birthday in September - so I'm not putting my crochet hooks away quite yet. However, I have no current crochet project, so I have retrieved Christmas Dreams from the craft room and set it up by my stitching chair. I have made a start on page 8 (which is actually page 13, since I am stitching it sideways) and hope to finish this page before the end of this month. Here's where I am tonight.
And that's all from me tonight.
