I knitted the above neck poncho using two strands of Dk yarn to create a chunky weight. It was wool that was in my stash and wanted ton use up. I am quite pleased with the results.

The yarn for this scarf was the yarn that was wrapped around the goodies I received in the magic ball swap I participated in last month. It was a quick knit but I took me a little longer to knit becasue I was knitting other things in between.

Previous swaps I have taken part in

I love the scarf and the stitch markers I got.

Fingerless gloves. My favourite colour too. I had chocolate, a button and a tube of beads.

That was a another nice swap.

I had a lot of goodies in this bag: a keyring, a handbag calendar, stitch markers and a postcard.

Neck poncho

I knitted both neck ponchos in four hours. I used black chunky wool as that was all I had in chunky. I saw the buttons at a knitting show In attended in Birmingham and thought they would look nice on the neck poncho.

Very easy to knit and looks very nice on.
