Sporty Poncho

Awhile back I had a request for crochet poncho.(thanks Lucy for the inspiration) Of course it was smack dab in the middle of our move. So I worked on it a bit here and there, and finished it rather quickly. But of course when it came to writing the pattern that's where I was stalled.

No longer is that the case. It is done, and I am so excited to be able to get it out there. If you sneak a peek at my Flickr stream you may have already seen it. But here it is in all it's finished glory :)

Back at it...

I apologize for my absence. It has been a very busy and stressful few months. We have moved, bought our first house (which is a fixer upper) and the hubby has just recently deployed to Afghanistan. Among other things of course. So while things are not in as much order as I would have hoped they would be at this point. I am finding it necessary to pick up the crafts again.

My brain is jumping with ideas and I miss sharing them here....

So with that, I made a little ear warmer headband today, thought I would share...
