To Everything There is a Season

People in other geographic areas may have begun to feel fall weeks ago. For those of us in south Texas, it’s still been summer. A bit of a milder portion of summer, but summer nonetheless. All of this is about to come to an end. This weekend, we are getting a cold front. Okay, so for us that means it will be in the 50s for lows and low 80s for highs, but that is definitely a change for us at this point. Football is on, there is a crispness already beginning in the air, I can tolerate being outside for more than 5 minutes, yep folks, it’s fall!

In honor of fall, I’m jumping on the harlot bandwagon and knitting a poncho. I wasn’t going to do it because I didn’t want to invest a lot of money in something I may not wear often, but I gave in when I found some soft acrylic for super cheap. Yes, acrylic does have it’s place for me. No need to invest a great deal of money in something that may only appear a few times. It’s going pretty quickly because it’s going everywhere with me. See?

With the change in season, I went with a little change on the blog. If you’ve been reading for a while, you’ll notice that it looks a little familiar. This is the quick change. I felt the need for a more simplified look but I didn’t have a lot of time to invest in it, so I went with an old stand-by.

PS Thanks for the help on the french knots! I’ll be trying these out this weekend and I will let you know if I conquer it!

  1. Beautiful color. I can see your point about acrylic, have you ever thought about using a cotton blend? I did a poncho with Manos Stria, made a nice swingy fabric.

  2. For what it’s worth, I can’t do french knots to save my soul, and I’ve been embroidering and cross stitching since I was 8 or so. I kinda learned this summer, but I haven’t done it in a while, so I’m sure I’ve forgotten again!

  3. French knots are my favorite things to do while embroidering. Your little sister is wearing ponchos like crazy here. Even if you decide you wont wear it you can always pass it on to her. I think you will like it once you get to wear it, though.

  4. Yay soft acrylic! Okay, I like acrylic. Don’t tell, really. Your poncho looks wonderful, and I’m glad that it’s getting tolerable out there….
    I like the blue, it’s nice to change it up every once in a while, right?

  5. So they’re fads. So they’re trendy. So what. There’s a poncho style for almost everyone, and if it really looks fabulous on you, it will never go out of style.
