FO - homespun hoodie/poncho
Well, I finished the homespun hoodie yesterday but... my camera mysteriously went missing. It amazingly reappeared after my DD got home from school. Wonder how that happened?

Anyway, here's two homespun things that I've finished. One is a poncho for my neice - I used "Cotton Candy" and the pattern is SUPER easy! 2 rectangles done in garter stitch and then sewn together with fringe on the edges.

The hoodie is done in "Covered Bridge" red with "Edwardian" edging. I kinda flubbed the edge of the hood - it was supposed to have 1x1 rib then stockinette but... it's OK. Hey, he's 4 so he'll probably only get to wear it one season. Plus, I'm the only one in the family who knits so I doubt anyone will notice the little "oops"!

What to do next? :thinking:

okay gotta finish my homespun kids hoodie now!

and I totally know what you mean about cameras disappearing - this morning, I wanted to take some photos of needles, and lo and behold, I could'nt find the camera. Two minutes later my son calls me and says "where's the battery recharger, Mom"? arghhh! He had the camera and ran out the batteries

well, good news is that he was thoughtful enough to re-charge them!

I think... :thinking:

Those are GREAT!!!

I am making a poncho in the homespun also for my oldest daughter... its called Williamsburg... sorta a medium blue. I am about 2/3 done with it.

I want to put fring on it but my daughter said no... maybe if I show her yours and how CUTE it looks she will change her mind :D

I love that color and have used it for... something?

Another idea for your poncho is a tassel on either point of the poncho? That would also work but the fringe is just so... fringie! Doesn't this turn out much bigger than you think it's going to? I was sure that this would be too small but its perfect!
