Do you remember????

For those of us who remember the seventies this will bring back memories! It's a Poncho!!



It is in the latest edition of Simply Crochet and I am making it for my daughter who wants one for Xmas. I had one many years ago whilst a student in bright oranges and Browns along with an afghan coat!   It is lovely to be crocheting something like this in nice Aran weight yarn but I have to thank Lucy at Attic24 for pointing me in the right direction for a tutorial on how to do the rib effect collar. When I first read the pattern it put me off but she found a great You Tube tutorial which shows clearly how to do the post stitches which form the rib stitch.   

I am also starting a blanket from one of Lucy's patterns on her blog at Attic24 lovely in lovely rich colours.


My sewing has been very Xmas related - lots of decorations on the embroidery machine and some Xmas cards.  



My main project has been to try and get a banner made for the church where we hold our group meetings.


I have put it up on my design wall to look at for few days before I finish it off. 

I have sent my Santa sack to Gina and it arrived safely so just wait for  mine to arrive ! 

Trying to resist all the " Black Friday" sales  and just stick to my Xmas shopping list. 

Bye for now
Pauline
