Hope your Monday is coming along swimmingly. Mine is disappearing much faster than I would prefer… I have not finished the things I am trying to finish. I have not done all the things I am trying to do.
Still. I am cosy inside, drinking a lot of tea, chipping away at things. I know that they’ll get done. It might be a little later than planned, but late is still done, right?!
I wanted to quickly show you this cute project I started on Mother’s Day. A poncho. Of course. It’s super easy and fun to make. I think I had the exact same kind when I was little and I most definitely want to make one for my niece. This one is for me though. I’m about 1/4 the way through. Ponchos take time.
Rin (my daughter who is twenty-seven) popped around and I asked her to try it on for me, but she just shuddered and said ‘Errr. COLOURS!’ Rin doesn’t like colours. That’s okay, though, because everyone is different. I asked Rin if she wanted me to make her a grey one but she said she didn’t like ponchos because you can’t hold a bag when you are wearing a poncho. I said you could hold it in the crook of your arm or you could have a pocket in your poncho. She wouldn’t be in it, unforts. But that’s okay. I still love her. I have the capacity to love people who don’t love ponchos. I’m good like that.
Still… I guess I will have to try it on for myself…
(I’m definitely going to add pompoms to this poncho. Just in case you were going to ask. I’m really definitely going to do that.)
Have you been making anything? Maybe you’d like to make a poncho? Or just wear a poncho? Or maybe colours make you shudder too and you want this in grey or taupe or black instead? Maybe you don’t like ponchos either?
Do tell me. Drop a comment below? Tell me your making/poncho thoughts? Ponchos : yes? no?
