WiPs β€˜n Things

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

I really dropped the ‘blogging-ball’ last month. πŸ™ƒ So one of the things I have to change – not calling it a resolution … ’cause they tend to come here to die 😜 – is getting back into the rhythm, writing more, visiting with you! I did miss you all! 😍

It’s already the 6th, so I am getting a late start, but we can call this a Trial Month, I guess 😁

It’s ok… I read it on the Internets, so it’s the truth!πŸ˜‚

Besides the usual holiday craziness last month, there were a few things that kept me busy, leading to falling behind in some endeavors, put things on the back burner.

One of the ‘distractions’ was a custom order for a poncho and a hat

The lovely lady that gave Feronia a new home, contacted me and ordered another Poncho and a Tassel Hat…this time in all black 😳 You know me… I love my things crazy and colorful. So it was definitely a challenge. A few times I had to fight the notion to put a pink stitch in. Just one…right here πŸ˜‚

But – I fought it, and it was worth the struggle. She looooved it! 😍

In between all the Christmas ‘duties’, presents, and planned projects, the son of dear friends of ours and his wife welcomed a baby boy into their midst…a little early. But he was close to 8 pounds – so he was ready to meet the world 😍 We think he wanted to see the Christmas tree 😁 and his ‘ Granny Square Blanket’ 😍

Then this one here took a lot of my time… The Puzzle Poncho 😊

If you remember – probably not, since you have a life…so let me jog your memory – it started as a Cowl.While I was working on that, and really liking it, my mind wandered to the possibilities of all things fabulous that would look great in this color combo.

I decided on another puzzle piece…’cause I really enjoy making small pieces and putting them together.

After it took shape I worked on it like a woman possessed 😁

And it’s done! 😊

Well, almost – the neckline will be an Infinity Scarf…it’ll look like a loose turtleneck, and the dreaded ends. Still gotta weave in some ends. 😫 I’ve woven in a ton already. Every time I think I’m done I discover another cluster.

It sure is a crazy piece…I can’t wait to wear it out and about! πŸ™ƒ

Also…some ‘ Bohemian Queen’ cowls are close to being finished. Miss Katherine (⬆️ the one with the hat) is giving you a sneak peek 😊

That’s all the news from the hook and drawing board. I’m looking forward to showing you the finished pieces, and some new WIPs that are – for now – just floating around in my head. 😍

Have a wonderful weekend πŸ€—

      Thank you so much, Rebecca 😍 I do love the Puzzle Poncho…I do see an internal struggle in my future though, when it comes to wearing it in public πŸ˜‚ It is quite…em…loud 😜
      The black poncho is pretty nifty, if I may say so 😊
      One tip…if/when you start it – don’t stop for another project, and put all β€˜fun-ner’ wips out of sight. πŸ˜‰
      Have a fabulous weekend πŸ’•

    Ooh you’ve been so busy!! Well done on resisting the pink stitch, I would have struggled with that as well. SO much black! I love your puzzle poncho, but dear me I can imagine the ends. I’m sure it’ll be worth it in the end!
