It's so hard to find good help these days, isn't it?

You know, I actually hear that phrase from my dear wife. I always thought she was talking about the children.

More Yarn
When you can't find what you want in a store...

ask a woman!

A few days a go my dear wife came home with some yarn for me (well for her poncho, actually ).

She managed to find five more skeins of the Bernat Softee Chunky in the Denim/Rag color.

Now, I just need more time made available to me for crocheting the darn thing..

It's a poncho that never ends.
It just goes on and on my friends.
Somebody started making it not knowing what it was,
and now they keep on stitching it forever just because,
it's a poncho that never ends...

Thank you, but maybe I should give credit to Sheri Lewis?

Jack, you are so blessed with a wife!! How many women would find just the yarn you need? I think she really wants you to finish her poncho!

I finished off the Poncho
Now I am working on getting the model to pose for a picture of it.

Stay tuned.

I have Shari Lewis' song stuck in my head (with your words to it). Can't wait to see the finished project! Does she love it? Have her take a picture of YOU in it.

Yes, she does love it. I really must remember to get pictures of my projects.
