A little while ago I read about a new KAL on the Nice&Knit blog. It was for a fair isle poncho in worsted yarn. I probably saw it late at night or early in the morning, then I am always very easily conviced to order new yarn for a project. This was especially tempting because Nice&Knit had been on my radar for a while, the colours looked really beautiful and I love the names they have. The main colour in my poncho is called Driftwood and it looks exactly the way I remember those logs on Long Beach on Vancouver Island.
The yarn didn't take long at all and so I was even able to cast on right when the KAL was supposed to start. The colourwork was lovely to knit and I watched a lot of Mr. Selfridge while I knit the body - I actually did the end twice because my first version turned out to be too long.
Now my poncho is all ready to be blocked, but I decided I'd rather wear it right away because it's perfect to sit on the balcony and read in the sunshine. I guess I can block it later, when it's either too warm or when it's raining ;-)
