New Poncho Plan

So I have a new poncho plan to add to the existing poncho. As I mentioned, I joined a poncho a long and was originally planning to make the poncho from Weekend Knitting. That is still on the pile. I am waiting for the yarn to arrive. I desperately wanted the actual yarn used in the pattern/picture, so I had to special order it. We don't have a yarn store in town (anyone interested in starting one?), just a Hobby Lobby and craft/sewing stores. These stores just have the generic types of yarn. I'm not going to use the nasty acrylic (Red Heart), but don't mind some of the nicer Lion brands, especially the machine wash/ dry ones that are perfect for my daughter--the stain producer.

After an internet search and careful consideration, it turns out that Austin's Hill Country Weavers is able to order the GGH yarn that I need. I'm waiting for it to come in so that I can get started.

I also decided to make my daughter a poncho:

This is a free lion brand patttern. I will use the Lion Brand recommended yarns, but in different colors. I picked out a sorbet (bright pink, green, orange, etc.) and a lime fur to trim the poncho in. My daughter will just love this one!
