Knitted Poncho

I decided to use up all my bits of naturally dyed wool and knit a poncho, but alas, I still have a medium sized basket FULL of 5g-50g balls. :-)






So warm and wonderful! Im living in it..... erm..... while.... erm...... I spin enough black alpaca and coloured silk hankies to knit another one...



So watch this space.

Dearest Carle'

I feel touched by our meeting yesterday and believe that our roads were destined to cross.

Thank you for your warmth, compassion and kindness...for listening to my story and for sharing my pain. You and Oliver were like rays of sunshine on a dark and cloudy day.

Your blog is beautiful :-)

Love
