Stash Swirl Poncho

I don’t always blog about my knitting projects, but this one was major.  I started in March on 2021.  It was supposed to be an amazing swirl sweater (Forest Fiesta
by Sandra McIver).  In October though I realized there was a twist in the cast on of this ginormous project.  So then I had to decide what to do.  I decided to be somewhat creative and make a twisted poncho with it. This project went on quite a few trips with me (our Boles multiple times, Sunbanks Blues Festival, Portland and Westport).  For those on Ravelry there is a link to the project with more information.  But yesterday during the Seahawks last regular season game (and win!) I finished knitting it.  And today I finished weaving in all of the many ends.  Then I was finally able to try it on and enjoy it.

It is fun, colorful and warm. I could block it make it bigger. I like the uniqueness of the twist.  And I love that it’s two sided with different characteristics of each side.  I was worried this wouldn’t work out, but it did.  Plus I used up a lot of stash including yarn from my sheep, from frogged projects, hand dyed yarn, and Spincycle yarns.  I was creative with the colors so that was fun too.  Now I will move onto the Woodland Hoodlet with my handspun mioget katmoget yarn.

    That is fantastic!! My daughter agrees!! I’m sure you’ll get a lot of enjoyment from wearing it! My daughter is going to look it up on Ravelry.
    I looked at the Spincycle webpage, and saw something I’ve never seen or heard of before. Can you tell me what non-mulesed means? If not, I guess I can contact the company and ask.

      Thanks Jeanne. It is good to hear you both like it. Mule sing is taking skin off the rear of a sheep to prevent fly strike. It has never been a practice in the United States but is in Australia.
