Hi - here is my latest creation. I love being able to tweak a pattern and make it your own. I used a yarnspirations.com pattern - Poncho (to knit). It was for hand knitting; but, easy to convert to the bulky Brother machine. It consisted of 2 panels - 15.5 inches wide and 29 inches long. I used Buttercream Rainbow Boucle, Teals & Blues. It was a little thinner than I liked; so, I made it twice as wide and doubled it after knitting each panel. I found some crystal pony beads at the JoAnn Shop and put one on each of the scallops - the pattern didn't show scallops; but, I winged it. The beads don't show up very good in my images - my third image is to show you the beads. Then, I decided it needed a little more bling; so, you see my result. I think I will like wearing it when we have some cooler weather. It's 101 degrees here today in Texas!!

Lovely colors, and it looks soft and snuggly. Will be great for cooler weather (or in an over-air conditioned room).

Hope your weather cools down soon. We're just starting to come down from a week-long heat wave, topping at 106F.
