She's wearing it to school today...
The final episode in the poncho saga! It's ready! Done! Finished!

But I'm working already on the sequel. Another poncho, for little sister this time.
I took a slow start on that one. Or maybe not really. I almost finished one panel when I decided it would be too small. That's the problem with knitting. Especially, when not using a pattern. Sure, for the poncho I had an example. I even made notes. But my experience with knitting is that you never/ not always know, what you'll get. Unless you work from the book, use the right yarn, knit the sample as indicated... which I never do. I usually start with some yarn, some knitting needles, an idea and lots of trial and error. I consider it being a process, where I might have to redo things over and over again before getting it right... But in the end I get there or, worst case scenarion, the project ends up in the closet.

Don't you worry, though, little H., I will finish this one!!

How do you knit?
