Kirsti Knits

Time - such a precious Gift is it; To work, to read, and Yes, to knit. - Minnie Gertz

Drive by posting...

On the way to bed, before I leave for 5 days in Boston. Back Sunday. Work conference, but hopefully I'll have some time to eat good seafood and maybe even find a SnB group or yarn shop.

The poncho got finished and delivered to its recipient, who was overjoyed, and refused to take it off. Here are the pics:

The pink was a last minute, er, addition, because I used up all my purple yarn for tassles before I realised that I still needed to make the i-cord for the drawstring, and sew the casing for the string down. Oops. But I figured that by putting it in the fringe, it became a feature. Overall, it's a simple pattern and a quick knit - the main frustration is that the rounds keep getting longer and longer as you go on... but it was all worth it to see the joy on Evelyn's face. Oh, and doesn't it tone well with my blog colours?

If you'll be free tomorrow night you should try out the Peet's Coffee group in Harvard Square. I'll be there as well as Polarg. :)

Hey, there you are!!

i just said to Deb, "Kirsti's not posted anything for more than a week!" And Deb said, "Maybe she knitted herself in?"


Have fun in Boston, i'm so jealous, i LOVE Boston!!!

The pink actually looks like it was meant to be there, it doesn't look at all like an "oops!" Well done!!
