The knitting on the Cabin Fever Weekend Poncho is finished! I started over twice. Once after unsuccessfully tinking back to an error, and another after fowling up the neckline. Luckily it knits very fast. I think I probably should have used some larger needles with the cotton because I couldn't get it blocked out to quite the right width. It should have been about 33 inches wide, and I could only coax it into doing 30 inches for me. Since it's 90 million degrees with 300 percent humidty here, it may be a few days drying. Then it's on with the fringe.
I really want to do the Mananita from Shawls and Scarves. I've attempted to start it in the past and have failed miserably. I couldn't even get the doggone thing joined correctly to start knitting in the round. I just can't get used to that knitting with dental floss. (I have a cone of Zephyr in Ladyslipper) I wonder if it could be done out of fingering weight yarn, rather than laceweight? Since I don't have the book yet, I'll probably start on the Leaf Lace shawl from Fibertrends. I have the pattern, and the yarn all ready to go. I'll be using Cherry Tree Hill Supersock in Old Rose.
