Calann sent the Azel Poncho off to the finisher Azel Poncho; it’s for her 5 year old granddaughter.

1. swap the first and last stitches cast on, place a marker on the right hand needle and join or
2. cast on an extra stitch, transfer it from the right needle to the left, place a marker on the right hand needle, then join, working the first two stitches together.

During this process someone showed her our Big Fat Stratus sample. She decided to switch to this project because it is a “mindless knit” with the exception of the provisional cast on in the beginning and grafting it together when it’s done. So she learned a provisional cast on and can look forward to learning how to graft (a/k/a the Kitchener stitch).
She knit a textbook swatch in Rasta (Super Bulky: 100% Merino, 90 yards) the for Azel Poncho for her granddaughter. This is her first time using circular needles to knit flat. She is a “straight needles only” knitter. We have convinced her that this heavy poncho will be easier to knit on a long circular.
In fact we should all remember to take calming breathes…
