Poncho Perfection




Through the autumn I crocheted and crocheted,
at home and by the lake, and after my surgery,


and finally my poncho 
was ready for wearing 
late at night
as I sit in bed, reading.


It's perfect for the job, as it warms me up,
but I can poke a few fingers through the holes to 
hold my book
as opposed to freezing two whole hands.


I added a rose to the front,
just to make it pretty.
I had grand plans of a dark blue shell edging,
but I ran out of the dark blue yarn.

I love the way the colours go with
the grey is rich with a little brown in it,
a good warm colour.
This might just be the most practical and appreciated
 item I ever crocheted.

I remember you starting your poncho, it is still just as lovely as it was then, in fact, even nicer because it is finished and you can use it now!! Happy snuggling with it! xx
