Finally, pics of shawl/poncho - Page 6

post #101 of 102
Ha! I watched the video and it confused me too. Did she have to go into the next stitch then yarn over? What exactly is she going to knit next since she's already in the next stitch. I'm off to try it. Well whatever I did worked. I just put my yarn over once then knit the next stitch.

It sound so obvious now but I was totally perplexed until I did it.

Hey I really would like to see everyone's poncho. I need the motivation as I work on my much longer adult version. 12 inches down way too many more to go. Baby Liam keeps taking my work and putting it over his head for peek a boo. It seems it tastes good too.

thanks robidoux-She stood still long enough for me to get one picture and the she was off again.

You guys are awesome! These are all looking so great. Makes me feel good to have shared something that is being so well received.

Kimberly.....did you try blocking it? Basically that's just steam/ironing it flat then pinning it (or pressing it) flat until it cools. Just make sure you use an appropriate heat for the yarn you used. (I used a damp washcloth and a lower setting on my iron). I've done that with one of mine because of the yarn I used and it is fine now...no curling.

I'm so glad some new knitters are trying their hand at the pattern. It really is so easy. And I agree, it's a great learning pattern. You're just doing stockinette for a long time so you get to practice basic knit and purl. Then once it's done, it's a rather impressive looking project. Helps gain a knitter's confidence, don't you think?
