another one done!!

I should have joined UFO August blog, since right now I am on a mission to finish all my summer projects so I can start fall with a clean slate. This project has been 20 minutes from completion since July 1st. Today was the day to finish. I don't think the herringbone pattern showed up well in the photos, so I tried a close up (which I don't know if it is much better). This was the herringbone poncho from Last Minuite Knitted Gifts, which I didn't connect then I added the crossover cable ends from Knitting on the Edge, because I thought it needed something if it wasn't going to be connected. I didn't want it to look like a blanket draped around me. I love the way it looks! And it is a wool, alpaca, cashmere blend of yarn, so it feels great on too!
6 items finished off my list of 11 - by the end of the month, I would like to be down to 2 or 3, so I can start some fun fall projects without the old hanging over my head. And added to my list of things that I want to knit, I have three people who want knucks! So I have to get started on that -- at least I know it will be a knit christmas. I should start soon . . .
Have a good weekend!
