la ponchette

I am happy to report that I am almost done with Carley's little poncho. I am not happy to report, however, that it is lopsided. (I think "lopsided" should have been my username.) I'm finding that I'm not always so good at eye-balling measurements. But, Carley will be turning 5, hopefully she won't notice or care all that much. Or maybe I'll have to include instructions on stretching it out first, before wearing. I've attached the front and back pieces together, now I just have to add fringe and I'll be finished. Hopefully by then I will have solved the photo posting mystery so I can show it to you. :)

Yay! A wonky poncho!

Maybe you could...dunt, dunt, dun...block it? Its a little scary, but using a water bottle to wet the part you are blocking instead of drenching the whole thing, seems a little better to me.

Okay, well, I tried my own version of blocking this morning, it's doing its thing as we speak, so I guess we'll find out what happened (if anything) tonight when I get home. Dunt, dunt, dun...

Well, the piece wasn't completely dry, but from what I could tell, the blocking worked...kind of. It's still a little lopsided (and a little loopy- I think because it's such a loose weave to begin with) but at least at first glance it should look better. At this point, that in itself would make me happy. I'll check it out tonight and report back.

Of course it was a Little Loopy!
