Big Project MondayI’m planning my next big project today. I believe I’ve shared this pin with you – either here on blog or on my Facebook page – as a beautiful knitting project. But it kind of stuck you know…

This time my goal would be something warm for summer nights. Living on the island has it’s flaws. It’s windy and moist – not overly warm I say…

As you can see on the pin (you have to click by the way) it’s pretty straight forward.Β Basically I need to knit two huge pieces. But…

I’m thinking I want to use some other stitch pattern for this. Of course I do, right? It would be too easy otherwise πŸ˜€


I’m thinking “Lace with cables” from one of my history post.

Beautiful shawl pattern with lace and cables

Well, what do you think?

I believe it’s lacy enough and it has cables so…

Yes – decided. This is my pattern for my knit poncho. Is it a poncho?

Anyway – now the hard part. Also, most fun part (for now at least). YARN… (no, it wasn’t shouting… it was happy high-pitched shriek πŸ˜€ ).

Let’s look at my expectations. It’s quite a big piece so it needs to be light, but heavy enough to “fall” nicely (very contradictory, I know). At the same time I want it to be warm, but not too warm (again… :D).

It’s good that you’re a knitter. Otherwise you might be thinking that I don’t know what I want πŸ˜€ But you understand me very well, don’t you?

I’m gonna most certainly use something natural. But not 100% wool. Oh no…

wool + cotton? cotton + linen? ahhh… alpaca + silk?

And then the color…. Pink like on the picture? Or maybe white (oh I love white). Maybe something bright? Like yellow or blue … Oh, oh, oh – purple? πŸ˜€

Common, would you help me out here? πŸ˜€
