1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: my first baby poncho! on: October 26, 2005 09:45:07 AM

it was tricky to begin a new round, since it's hard to discern from the pattern exactly what stitch it is you're joining.  but the bulk of the pattern was pretty easy and monotonous.  the hood was a bit more complicated and i had some problems finishing off.  toward the end, i got a little sloppy and just tucked away all the loose ends...i figure she'll grow out of it in about two months, anyway. 

oh, and the fringe - that was actually difficult!  it was so hard to see the stitches from the first row!  so i just kind of guessed.  Roll Eyes

that's awesome - your stitches look really clean.  i also like it with the eyes and teeth.

great job!!

hey...here's my first baby poncho (come to think of it...first poncho, period) that i've finished.  it was a present for my niece on her 1st birthday.  i had tons of this peach 100% cotton yarn by sugar n cream (which made it a bit stiff and heavy) and, unfortunately, the hood was too small for her.  here's where i got the pattern: http://www.coatsandclark.com/fun_and_free/yarn/lw1432.htm

here's a pic of her in it...ain't she purty?

awesome idea for the cases!  i couldn't think of anything to do with those; i always saved the disks and chopped them up to make a disco ball out of them (i saw it on craftychica.com) but i still have yet to complete that !  Undecided

you can also stick them whole onto a wall to create a mirror - not a very good one, but it does the trick and it looks cool.  i also used them to border doorways in my old apt.

now i love it when these things come in the mail!

awesome!  i have one question, though.  did you thread them through the slices, or glue the sides to the line, etc.?

mmm.  limes.

i'm not sure if this is the kind of yarn you're referring to, but...i recently made a sweatband out of this blue and white yarn that was made up of roughly 15 strands of thread.  if you're careful and watching where you pull and whatnot, you can make pretty much anything.  i used a size I/9 hook, if that helps.
