That Simply Crochet granny poncho is finally finished and goes for Sunday stroll



My most popular blog post from the last couple of months is one I published on 24th November 2014.
It was about crocheting that Poncho from a pattern in Simply Crochet magazine issue 25...

If you are interested you can read all about it HERE (it has all the poncho details too.)






I have no idea why this post received so much attention, maybe it was shared somewhere?
I love the poncho, but lots of people have made it, so nothing unusual there?
Maybe you have seen it shared around the 'blogosphere' if so do let me know....





Back to the poncho,.. I only half finished the fringe and left the other half swinging in the breeze!
However my Mum recently came to stay (all the way from her home in Florida) and I persuaded her to help...





She patiently and expertly cut the fringing to its required length, divided it into groups of five and handed it to me to hook onto the poncho.
In this way, between us the poncho was finally finished, thanks Mum!





This weekend, the weather being bright and fresh the poncho went on a 'walkabout' with the dog.





I like the way the colours  show up against the muddy tones of the riverside in mid January...









The pooch however was more interested in the birds...






Roll on spring I say...





because I miss the colour....




But at least I have my poncho and the pooch!

Have you made one yet?
