- 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.

Crochet Cowl Poncho almost off the hook
Oh I dare say the weather has turned the corner from Fall to early winter, the temps will be more seasonable, and I'm afraid the recipient of the cowl poncho will have to wait until early spring to adorn herself with the warmth of this poncho.
It's almost completed now, I've got two repeats of almost every color now, I'll try to stretch out the yarn to see how much farther to go. When I made the pink/burgundy for myself I made it longer by just adding rows, this one won't need to be as long. And then I'll add the edging. Box, wrap and surprise - Merry Christmas.
There's much go be done household wise today, and yesterday my husband and I took the opportunity to steal away to Amish Country on a clear blue and sunny day, those are at a premium going forward.
Have a great day, whatever it is that your doing
