Meet Pancho the Poncho! I started this last fall with the tiny skeins of various colors I spun on my spindles. I change colors randomly and the stripes are random widths. I'm just kind of making it up as I go along. There are about 20-25 different colors of yarn in it. Its really a pretty fun knit but I haven't worked on it in a while. Obviously, there are a lot of ends to weave in and I have been making myself work in the ends as I go, but I'm thinking that I could just do the ends when I feel like it. Last night I didn't really feel like knitting so I ended up just watching TV and doing nothing. This would have been some prime Weaving In Time if I had needed to but there were no ends to weave in. I'm thinking I should get back on this as a break from charted designs and things that require major brain power.

I've been working on the Mystery Stole a lot lately, so I'm scrounging a bit for Blog Fodder. The Mystery Stole is all designed and I have knit enough to know the design and charts are correct but I'd love to get this finished before the start of the knit along next Friday. I don't know if this is possible, this is Caleb's last week of school and we've got things going on every day this week. I haven't spun for a while either. Maybe tonight, I can sit down with Arwen and work on the Guardians of Lipstick.

I love Pancho! And suddenly I have a hankerin' for chips and salsa. Anyway, I love that it will truly be a one-of-a-kind since you are making it up as you go. I can't wait to see the finished product! sis

Wow... I've thought about doing a similar project with my spindle-spun, but a striped sweater. The only problem will be when I end up with two sleeves that are completely differently colored! *LOL* It looks beautiful... great project idea!
