Project info
Office Poncho
Nautilus Poncho by Norah Gaughan
Needle and yarn
US 11 - 8.0 mm
Cascade Yarns 109 LE Bulky
545 yards in stash
3.8 skeins = 414.2 yards (378.7 meters), 380 grams

To chase the chills away while sitting at my desk.

One skein used up so far. The thing is very long and very skinny. I am up to 14 stitches on the needle. Need to do the 30 row repeat until I have 22 stitches.

2 skeins used, up to 20 stitches on the needle, 2 more increases to go. Then the dreaded crochet.

12/16: Finished knitting. Now off to you tube to find crochet videos…

1/12: So I have attempted the crochet three times now. The first time, I misread the instructions. The second time, I got one side right but decided it should be neater. The third time I realized it was right but it was all upside down. Maybe because I am left handed. Now I know what I am doing - 4th attempt!

1/13: Ready to join this puppy together. Finally.
1/14: Worked on it last night, I had 3 false starts before I figured out a good method. Now I am rolling, halfway through the joining. What a project!

1/15: It’s finished. Just needs to be blocked. Whew!
