My first poncho.  Took forever because it was kinda boring to do....






From a pattern I bought on eBay (Daisy Fields Crochet Poncho/Becka's Boutique Trendy Crochet).  It's for my friend's granddaughter who lives in Colorado, so I wanted it to be warm for the Fall.  I used Lion Homespun.

Thanks!  But that's so not me!  That's the grandma!  (I know, I'm envious of her figure!)  And it's in colors I rarely ever wear.

you did a beautiful job.
just curious- do you want to claw out your eyeballs when you use homespun?  i find the stuff is the creation fo the devil.  its impossible to see your stitches, making consistent crochet impossible.  i really hate it.  anyone agree w/ me, or am i alone on this.
but anyways- beautiful job.

Thanks for the complements!  I guess I'm just used to working with homespun cuz it doesn't seem to bother me.  But I've been crocheting so long (like 30 years!) it's kind of instinctual to me and I don't need to see the stitches so much.  The only time it's really a pain is when you have to count.

Ach! Lion Brand Homespun. 

I have to admit that I love the stuff (it's so soft and the colors are so pretty), but you all are right, it is tough to work with.  I have problems with the starting chain and first row!  If I can get through that without killing anyone, I'm usually okay. Oh, and getting that teeny little thread caught on your hook is another hazard.

But I think it's worth the aggravation!
