Okay… so  I said I had to get back to the poncho, and I have… but I also needed a travel project on the needles.

When I visit Sam and family in the middle of the month, her husband remarked that the socks I had made him many, many moons ago (way back in 2016), had finally developed a hole.

I guess it’s time for a new pair.


Since spring is still ages away (as you can see by the hens and chicks in my poor little bird cage), I went with something bright and cheery to keep me excited. It’s a skein of Barn Cat in in “Laguna” – a wild swirl of aqua and green with pops of bright Mediterranean blue.

Nothing fancy in pattern – just a simple 3-1 rib. His birthday is at the end of March, so I’m hoping I can finish them before then. But…. poncho MUST come first! I want that bad boy off the needles by the end of February at the latest!

    Hmmmm….that yarn looks very familiar. I think you sent me a skein of it. In fact, I just looked. You did! It made some gorgeous socks.

    That yarn is so yummy looking! It will be a good occasional break from the poncho. I would be wearing that poncho on some of our unseasonably warm afternoons.


  3. You know we are as many weeks away as you or more for buds! I love your sock color way. Finish that poncho so you can wrap yourself in it as the winter carries on and on and on
    Maybe a ROYAL will copy you
