made from Lion Brand Yarn.
It's been years and years since I crocheted and never anything more than a square or a rectangle. I was inspired by the Martha Stewart "Coming Home" poncho. I practiced and practiced to get good enough. During my practices, I discovered Lion Brand Wool-ease Thick and Quick. I made my poncho changing the original directions to 10 skeins of color Wood T&Q. I love this poncho. It works as good in the fall of New England as the Arizona Grand Canyon and high country. Never before have I followed a pattern. I really didn't have any trouble until I got the the second row of the scalloped edge, but after 5 tries and a week later, I figured it out. I have so much more confidence now and have already bought yarn for dozens more projects. Thanks Lion Brand, thanks Martha and especially thanks to the designer of the poncho for making me a better person. Here's two photos of me at the Grand Canyon last Sunday in my new poncho.
