- I'm a lover of vintage times and simple elegance of another era. I'm waiting a while for my special little farmhouse. While I'm waiting, I'm making good use of my time creating lovlies with my crochet hook n thread or yarn, and baking and cooking from scratch for my family.

work at your pattern it will come out a

stitch at a time taken patiently.

Crochet Cowl Poncho WIP
I few posts back, I invited you to visit with Pammy Sue, many of you already know her, and her crochet work and love of the craft. If you haven't visited there review a few posts back to get the link to her place and see they eye candy of the Crochet kind.
She made a lovely cowl poncho, and I got hook envy, so I'm fashioning one up too. I just finished up the cowl portion. I want to thank Pammy Sue for her assistance and encouragement. I do have a picture of the cowl portion of the project, using yarn I had on hand Caron Simply Soft, I cannot recall the name of it at the moment. I did choose a few yarns to go with it, and see what I can bring to the party from the stash bucket.
There was some new stitches learned in this for me, and I got plenty of practice using them on the cowl portion. Forward and back post stitches. I had done forward but the backward I had never done before, there are are many great tutorials, and depending how you learn you can find a printed with pictures or video, I use both, but prefer the actual demonstration.
Looking forward to the New Year, and wishing you all a happy healthy one.
