I’ve had this beautiful selection of Scheepjes Bloom for a couple of months now, but haven’t had any ideas as to what I should do with it. The colours are so vibrant, and there are so many, I honestly felt a little overwhelmed. I mean, look at this colour selection:
It wasn’t until this week that I was doing a bit of Facebook browsing of an evening when I saw this gorgeous poncho WIP by Meet Me At Mikes and realised that I had found the perfect project for my Bloom. The only problem was, I didn’t have enough of one colour to be able to recreate this one exactly and nor did I have the patience to wait for yarn to arrive if I was to order it, so I thought I would do a bit of browsing for something similar and came across this fabulous poncho design by Sewchet. And even better, it had a free tutorial!
It’s a really cool design, and although I didn’t follow the pattern to the letter, the idea is essentially the same.
But the wait was totally worth it. My daughter is seriously irresistible in her new poncho.
I’m still lusting after the vibrant colours of Meet Me At Mike’s poncho, and I reckon if I dig through my stash I’ll be able to find the yarn. But first I need to finish about six other projects. As usual!
What’s on your hook?
