Michelle was into the second skein of her Poncho Air Lux knit with Air Lux (Fingering: 70% Rayon, 30% Wool, 328 yards) when the yarn broke off. At this point it measured 30″. She’s going to rejoin the yarn and finish the second skein and block it to the measurements.
She had an interesting experience while traveling. She stopped at Webs in Northampton. Her husband pointed out a sample that he thought would look good on her. When she checked out the tag, she was pleasantly surprised to see Centerport Cropped Poncho designed by Pam Grushkin. YAY! She will be casting on for this in the near future.
As an aside, we are knitting a sample for the Centerport Cropped Poncho for Westport Yarns in Blue Sky Fibers Extra (Aran: 55% Alpaca, 45% Merino, 218 yards). Would you be shocked to hear that I had enough Extra in my stash to knit one for myself?
with Rowan Cotton Lustre (Bulky: 55% Cotton, 35% Rayon, 10% Linen, 87 yards).
