The battery arrived this afternoon. I am now on my laptop and back in business to download my pictures. Yeahhhhh. This is the second of many ponchos I plan to knit. This one is in our Ohio State University colors. I am planning to make many for a craft show our church has in October. I am thinking I can sell them for $20 each. Hope they will sell.
This is most, but not all of the yarn I bought to make them. I first bought the buttons, then matched the yarn to the buttons. I am knitting the third one right now. When it is finished, I will post it too. My poor Warrior is here beside me not very happy to not be receiving any stitches right now.

Oh my, Nancy, you are such a busy knitter. I love these ponchos and I'm sure they will sell. Looking forward to seeing the knitting threads turn into ponchos.

I'm glad to see that you're back in business! What a wonderful thing to sell, I'm sure you'll do well selling them for $20.00 each.

Yeaaah!! the battery arrived!
The poncho is beautiful and I can't wait to see the others, you chose great colors.
Happy weekend :D

What al lot of material (thread?)(don't know the english word). You'll have to do a lot of knitting! Promiss to do 1 thread of DMC on your Warrior after each poncho you finish!

Oh this is great news Nancy...glad to see you are back in business. Your latest poncho is so pretty, I love red. The yarns for the other ponchos are really nice...I'm looking forward to seeing the different color combinations.
I'm getting reading to change my blog header and I'm with you...the yellow text is a pain...I'm not planning to use it again. I liked it with the picture...but it can be difficult to read...hugs, Linda

Heidi said... are just being you. I am not surprised you are buying the yarn to match the buttons. LOL! I am sure these will sell well. Bullie, get to Mom's and help her knitttttt. :-) I am glad you can use your laptop once again. Although your mini came to good use while all this waiting was happening.

Love and hugs ~

Glad you are back in business since your battery arrived. I would think the poncho could sell for much more than $20. That's a lot of work. You are a happy knitter aren't you?!

Since she doesn't read your blog I'll tell you....they're pillows. Heidi guessed right! I just don't want Jill to know until she gets them as a gift, LOL! A girl has to have some surprises!

Have a nice day & hugs, Carolien

Thank goodness the battery has finally arrived. You can breathe a great sigh of relief now :>)
I just love that pretty poncho. Rula had a poncho once and absolutely loved it. I'm sure you will have no trouble at all selling them. The colours of your yarn are absolutely gorgeous :>)
Hugs, Angela
