Morphed Crochet

Poncho Tunic by Irene LundgaardOn Friday night I started working on a crochet poncho, I had this idea that a new poncho would suit my wardrobe just right and at the same time the end product could be used in my upcoming workshop and crochet class where participants can design their own poncho. It’s a fun class and I had the best time picking colours for the project! I landed on main colours in Cushendale DK and some Noro Silk Garden Lite for a bit of discreet colour effect.

However, once I started crocheting the poncho morphed itself into a sweater, which meant there was quite a bit of ripping and perhaps just the tiniest bit of cursing involved. Just a bit, naturally! However, when the sweater was well under way the poncho yet again took on a life of it’s own and morphed further by turning itself into a tunic. Or rather, it turned itself into wanting to become a tunic and there was the corresponding amount of ripping and just the tiniest bit of cursing involved too. And right now, I think I’m on the home stretch, but only time will tell. Sleeves are yet to be made as is most of the main body and God only knows what that will morph into, but one thing is for sure, I’m fairly well rehearsed in the cursing department, whatever happens! Wish me luck!

PS. I made a typo in the word ‘crochet’ when I was writing this and the spell checker suggested ‘ricochet’ as the correct spelling… Now, there’s a thought!

    Jeg er spændt på hvad resultatet bliver.
    Poncho—Trøje—Jakke—Nederdel?
    Farverne er MEGET gode som sædvanligt.

    Tina, I think my sister is on the verge of being a chancer! 😉

    Fuur, jeg er også spændt! Jeg har netop trevlet et helt nøgle garn op fordi det ikke lader til at ville være en tunika-ting, men mere en trøje … Vi får se hvad det ender med! Og tak for farvekompliment!!!
