Poncho Inspiration

This week has been a bit of a bumper ride with some very low points. It has however not all been gloomy, and one of the definite up’s has been working with the lovely Scheepjeswol Luca yarn that I introduced you to last week.

Some of you may know that I have close family who lives all the way in Guatemala. Thinking of them and planning a trip out there made me look at photos of that country recently. It reminded me that, like Peru, Guatemala is a country alive with striking colours. Especially the ponchos are a feast for the eye, and this gave me an idea and ample inspiration for my Luca project.

The jewel colours lend themselves to some colour work, and after playing around with different ideas I have settled on a simple, yet striking slip stitch pattern.

This is the current state of play…

I am loving every minute of it and hopefully I will be ready to share a big TahDah moment with you next week.

Enjoy your weekend, and happy Sinterklaas – St. Nikolaus to all of you who celebrate.
