Good morning lovelies,

Hope you’ve had a great weekend!

Today, I want to show you the progress I’ve made to my poncho so far…

Actually I am not working on it as much as I should…making one round every 3 or 4 days… I am in another kind of planet right now 😉

But it is growing …very slow…but growing…

25 rounds so far…

To read more about the poncho’s cal, go HERE! You’re still welcome to join if you didn’t yet 🙂

More progress on the joyful ripple and a new finished painting coming soon 😉

Stay tuned and have a wonderful week!

Good sunny morning to you all!

I hope that the sun is shining today in your part of the world 🙂

Today, a lot to share with you…

Progress on 3 wips and a good news…

Let’s begin with the wips shall we?

A new painting…I’m loving so far…

More slow progress on my Love Birds bed blanket….

Some squares were 100%done, some needs the last blue round and some are still babies…

but I’m happily working on it 🙂

and more progress on my poncho too : 19 rounds so far 😉

and finally the good news is: Yes, I’m expecting (you already guessed 😀 …but chuuuut I’m still afraid to tell 🙂

I am now in the last days of my third month but I still have that fear … I think it will never goes away… but my heart sings with joy when I think about the little baby growing inside of me 🙂

and yes, I’m gonna spoil him (or her) with a lot A LOT of crochet 🙂 For my first two babies (in 2005 and 2007), I did not crochet at the time, so my mother made for them crocheted blankets and I was making cross stitch for their rooms…but now…OH MY…I’m gonna make blankets, hats, socks, amigurumi toys, little sweaters… everything I can make with my hook 😉 I can not wait to STAAAAAAAAAART 🙂 crazy mom!

That’s all my sweet friends ! I am today very happy and calm! I hope you’re feeling the same!

THANK YOU so much as always for your support and your kind comments … I am so lucky to have you all 🙂

Have a wonderful week!

I am super super happy about you all joining the poncho’s experience 🙂 It made my heart sings with joy 🙂 It will be so much fun I am sure 🙂

Welcome to you all 🙂 You can join, of course, you can join, even if you already crocheted some, even though it will not be for you, and even if it will be not right now (you have to finish some wips first) You are all welcome 🙂 whenever you want to join I’ll be waiting for you 🙂 and I am very happy to have you all crocheting a long with me this happy piece of clothe 🙂

I’ve added a small and a bigger button with their html codes on my previous post…if you want to grab them and add them to your blog or your website, do not hesitate …they are HERE at the end of the post !

and to my lovely french friends: Rosalie a gentiment propose le pattern en francais pour celles qui le desirent…le debut est un peu different mais le resultat le meme 🙂 Vous pouvez trouver le tuto ICI! Merci infiniment Rosalie 🙂

So, today, I want to share with you the beginning of my poncho…

Let’s take a look at the yarn first…well, do you remember the yarn I showed you in this post ?

Yes, it is the new Nako: the superlambs special a 50%acrylic, 50% wool that I’ll be using for my poncho.

There is 12 colors… deep colors that reminds you the autumn …

and I’ve totally fallen in love with these colors…they are my colors of the moment 😀 hehe

and now, let’s take a peek to the first 4 rounds of the poncho…

I’m crocheting the poncho with a 4.5mm crochet hook. I’ve started it with a chain of 88ch…yes, my head is a little big 😉

Don’t forget: Your beginning chain must be a multiple of 8 and big enough to enter through the head!

I’m very pleased with the first 4 rounds of my poncho 🙂 and I am sooo thrilled about it…when I’m doing things around the house I keep thinking about the moment I will grab my hook and add some rounds 🙂

So, my lovelies, if you did not join us yet, I hope that today you will change your mind 🙂 Come onnnnnnnnnnnn! We are waiting for youuuuuuuuuuuuu!

Spoil yourself with a poncho!

By | March 19th, 2012|poncho, Sucrette's granny poncho cal, Uncategorized|68 Comments

Good morning sweet people,

As you already guessed from the title of this post, the new cal (crochet-a-long) will be a poncho 🙂 Yes, an adult granny poncho.

As we always crochet for the others, making blankets for all the members of the family and crocheted gifts for our friends, this project is totally selfish. For spring and autumn, a poncho is something special to wear…it makes you warm and happy for no reason 🙂

So, my sweeties, what do you think? Are you in? Are you totally thrilled by this project like myself? I think it will be awesome if once the ponchos are made, to set a particular day so we can all wear our ponchos 🙂 A “poncho day” for you sweet ladies around the world ! I just love this idea 😀

Let’s set up now some rules, shall we? 😉

Rule1: Crochet a granny poncho for yourself. And if it is not your kind of clothing to wear, crochet a poncho for your child, your daughter, your mother or as a gift for a special friend.

Rule2: No date limit to finish the poncho. You can begin it and finish it whenever you want 🙂

Rule3: No special colors to use. It can be very colorful (like mine 😉 ) or crocheted with just one color or two…It is up to you!

Rule4: No special yarn to use also… You can crochet it with acrylic, wool, cotton or whatever you like.

Rule5: Pattern: HERE! It is a granny pattern, very simple and easy to follow. It is a graphic pattern but I tried, yesterday evening to add a small paragraph to it, to explain it with written directions… If you have any problem starting the poncho, don’t hesitate to tell and I will help you. This pattern is totally addictive, you’ll see 😉

If you want to see some crocheted ponchos with this pattern, go here!

So, these were the rules. Are you joining in this fun project? Come one! Let’s spoil ourselves with a poncho! Let it be a selfish project and we will all encourage one another in creating this “happy piece of clothing” to wear on the grayest days 🙂

If you want to join, leave me a comment on this post or here in this flickr discussion or here in this ravelry discussion and tell me if it will be for you or for somebody else and what yarn you’ll be using. Don’t forget to post your blog address if you have one!

I created also a flickr group and a ravelry one so we can all share our pics and progress…

I am sooo happy already 🙂 Come on! Join in! It will be so much fun!

I’m waiting for youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!

Have a bright and colorful week!

Sucrette
