celtic celebration!

i LOVE this celtic poncho! and so does dd. actually i think the color looks fantastic on her, so it's hers.

fun fun fun knit, the black water abbey yarn softened up wonderfully.

the pattern was easy to knit, and i love the 2 cables together, they complement each other beautifully.

thanks for all the comments! it's really fun to hear from people on the net that i don't even know :-)

don't know how much knitting time i'll have in the next week. my basket teacher, karol lindquist is comimg tomorrow,and i'm driving to fort myers to pick her up. our class starts on saturday. i'm making an 8" round topped basket. turned the top and bottom last summer on nantucket, so i'm all set to go :-)

My FGD looks like a model. What a lucky girl to get to keep the poncho for her very own. It looks great with her coloring. Have fun in basket class and tell Karol I said hello.
