kpixie ponchette

When I saw a picture of Wendy of the Knit & Tonic blog wearing this beautiful ponchette, I knew that I had to have it and had to knit it.

I tried to resist; I promise! After all, I have Karen's sleeveless summer shell, my pink summer sweater, and a sock, all on the needles. All begging for my attention.

It couldn't be helped. I was infected by the "new knitting project" demon.

My yarn and pattern arrived from kpixie on Monday. This is the first time I've ordered yarn online.

This is also the first time I've knitted with hemp yarn. It's interesting. It feels a bit waxy and slides off the needles so easily.

Knit & Tonic's Wendy wrote that she knitted her ponchette in three days. I don't know if I'll be quite so fast but I hope to finish it quickly (so that I can wear it!) and can return to my previous projects.
