Hi gals, I was browsing through Hobby Lobby today and OMG they have the BEST yarns I have seen in a while.  The new Moda Dea and Yarn Bee yarns are just delicious.  I really want to buy some but I don't really want to get something that doesn't crochet well (or takes 25 skeins to make a single poncho).  So does anyone have any pattern suggestions for any of these yarns?  I am newly pregnant and would really like to make myself a nice cozy poncho to wear this fall...So, any input?  Thanks so much!

congratulations! i'm 6 monthes pregnant. i used the yarn bee pitter patter to make a baby hat and it is wonderful. sooooooo very soft. i really just want to fill a room with it and roll around alll day but that would be really expensive  Cheesy that is the only yarn bee that i've used though. i went to hobby lobby the other day...they had all of their modadea on sale but unfortunately i was there for fishermans yarn for soakers and flannel for diapers. i did get some Caron bliss to make another baby hat...it is soooooooo soft. i swear my child is gonna have a different hat for everyday of the year  Wink

Can't find an official website for Yarn Bee.  I've never used them, but they do feel nice.

you could use one of those yarns for trim or smaller projects, but unless you are rich, a poncho may not be a good idea. moda dea has really nice yarns, soft, pretty, nice colors, most often knock-offs of more expensive yarns, like tahki, or artful yarns, which are even more insanely expensive. i use one called aerie a lot for scarves, it is so soft. actually, for a scarf, if it is a loose knit on big needles, you could get by on one ball, i make scarves for a boutique and use tutu and aerie together on huge needles and have a 4 foot scarf with lots of fringe from just one of each yarn believe it or not. i only cast on 8 stitches. can you say quick? so either do a really loose knitted wrap or shawl or just a nice scarf, or hat, or just use as a trim, or make bay hats or booties...baby stuff is sooo fun to knit. it takes no time and is so cute. also, there are a couple of books out about knitting with small amounts of yarn/leftover yarns/expensive yarns that would probably have good ideas...one is called oddballs, i can't think of the others at the moment, i must go to sleep. congrats on mommahood to come!
