I'm jumping on the poncho train (I just got the pattern for the funky poncho at http://www.mofodesign.com/MoFo2Go.html under the knit patterns button) and wondered if anyone was up for a knit-along. 

I figure everyone could just do whatever kind of poncho they wanted--something from craftster or elsewhere.  Or make up your own!  So this could be open to knitters and crocheters; anybody that wants to join.

Any takers?

Hi Wootwoot,

I'm in.  I just bought the yarn for this yesterday.  However, before I totally commit, I may be delayed as I think I bought the wrong type of yarn.  I couldn't find the recommended one.

Can you help me figure out whether it'll work?  I posted a shot of the yarn on my blog - http://passioknit.blogspot.com

It is a beautiful poncho.  I hope it'll work with the yarn as it just so lush and soft.

well, considering that I was just about to start a poncho...  I'm in!   Cheesy  maybe this will keep me motivated.

this is what I'm knitting, but in a cream color (because I have it already and I'm never going to use it, I'd much prefer black)

I'm in, although I don't really have a pattern. I'm just knitting a big rectangle.

I might be a little bit delayed, too.  The yarn that I thought was going to work is probably not, so I'm looking for a new one.  I'll let you know when I find a good one.  I found a little bit of the Katia Twist on ebay, but only 2 skeins, and not the color that I want.  Basically I'm looking for the cheapest yarn that I can find that will work.   

I don't know if the Filtes King yarn will work or not, although that would be awesome.  It looks so soft and I love wool.  I guess you could try it and if it doesn't seem to be working out you could frog it and save it for another project.

Wootwoot, the yarn is just divine.  It's knits up beautiful in stockinette stitch. I think I'll try it and just see what happens.

Btw, I was in a yarn store today and I asked about Katia.  She didn't have it, but recommended this - http://www.yarns-and.com/FiltesKing/FKkikki.htm ... I think.  It's very similar to the Katia.

HTH.

Oh, wow.  That yarn is beautiful.  But about a zillion dollars out of my price range.  $72/ball seems a little crazy.  I'm kind of having to go economy on this one.  I'm going to the store tomorrow to see if I can find something I can use. 

But once I make my first million, I'm definitely going to pick me up some of that FiltesKing.

Okay, everybody, glad that people are interested.  I even made a button for the knit-along, which you can use if you want to link to this thread.  I just wanted one for my blog because I'm a little bit of a button junkie. 



If you do decide to use it, please don't hotlink. 

I can't wait to see everybody's ponchos.

Wootwoot, I have a feeling that price is wrong.  I can find it for $7.25CDN, so for the US you're probably looking somewhere between $4 to $5.

well, I'm over half done on my poncho.  I have one rectangle done and about 1/4 of the other.  I can't wait to get it done!
