The Poncho that took me over a year to knit is finished! It’s not really a poncho, but a ruana – a free form cardigan, perhaps.
I made it for a friend, at her request.
She kept asking me if she had overstepped the friendship line by asking me to make it. I did not, and do not, feel that she had, even if it took longer than she expected.
When I accepted the request, I should have said – if I did not say it – I am not a prolific knitter. I do not knit quickly. I knit in my spare time, and balance it with my other spare time activities. Perhaps I did not make this clear.
Regardless. The ruana is done. Delivered to its owner. Who told me she likes it.
Here it is.
3 different yarns knit together to make its own fabric.
My friend picked the yarn (and was taken aback at how expensive yarn can be). I merely knit it. And then sewed the pieces together.
(And I’m ready to knit something else now.)
