A Word Epiphany
Love, Actually

Until the Twelfth of Never

In honor of a finished knitting project, we need a sountrack.  (And in honor of Throwback Thursday, that soundtrack needs to be . . . Donny Osmond!)

 

I have wanted to knit the folded poncho from Churchmouse Yarns & Teas for a very long time.  It just looked like a perfect piece to have in my wardrobe:  Easy to pop on.  Functional.  And kinda chic, too.

But the thought of knitting a giant, never-ending rectangle just kept me from casting on!

But, after the holidays, I really needed a nice, simple, relaxing project.  And the Churchmouse folded poncho was just what I needed.

But, man!

That's a lot of stockinette!

I'll KNIT YOU til the bluebells forget to bloom. . .

I'll KNIT YOU til the clover has lost its perfume. . .

I'll KNIT YOU til the poets run out of rhyme. . .

Until the twelfth of never, and that's a long, long time!

It may be a lot of knitting, but it is the process after all. :)
All the knitting payed off as it looks great on you and will be a nice layer of warmth while it's so cold!

It looks great on you! And Donny. Oh, Donny. I was going to grow up and marry him, ya know.

Marilyn

It looks great on you! But...oh my...what a lot of stitches and inches and yards of yarn!!

Jo

I have a similar project on the needles right now -- a slog, but the product will be worth it. You have provided inspiration to keep on keepin' on because the product looks so great on you!

That IS a lot of stockinette. The first sweater I made myself after I got back to knitting was my kimono sweater, which was roughly a football field of stockinette. It took me two years. Glad you poncho went faster. It is lovely!
