Through the autumn I crocheted and crocheted,
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 cushion on our bed,
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.
