I'm still not convinced I'm a poncho person, and I feel ever so slightly like a tool when I'm wearing it in public, but I like it despite all that. One problem I discovered yesterday - the purse stitch is gorgeous but it catches on anything and everything (zippers, my son's toes, tree branches...).
For those of you who are wondering (and to further irritate my hubby), here is a picture of the scrape on the van. See, it's really not too bad. Just a scratch, really. And I'll say it again - he hit us! Does that make you feel better, my dear?
I've made some good progress on my Christmas gifts as well. Click here to read about what I'm knitting for the brother-in-law and father-in-law, and click here to read about what I'm making for my mother-in-law. Unless, of course, you are one of those people and don't want a spoiler!
Aren't you impressed with all my knitting? I'm impressed that my kids are letting me do all this blogging, quite honestly. Thank you, Noggin!
