Instead of the poncho, I used the yarn to make a shawl. It’s all finished and had its first outing to the weaving shed today.
I needed something cosy to wear to keep me warm when weaving but I hate sleeves of any kind while throwing the shuttle, they get in the way and are generally irritating.
A shawl seemed like the perfect solution but I didn’t want a really grannified one and came across this pattern on Ravelry (sorry, useless blogger moment, I can’t remember what it’s called) with a cute picot edging.
The yarn is undyed blue faced Leicester aran weight from West Yorksire Spinners and is gorgeously soft and snuggly, comfortable enough to wear against your neck.
It was a very quick make and easy to do in a powercut (!!).
