Hehehehe...Leisel. No-one's perfect. ;) I'll try to over look this little indescretion - as long as it doesn't happen again! ha!

Seriously - that's a very nice poncho. I love the cabling and it looks SO warm!

I can't think of a reason to bind off those stitches - go ahead & put 'em on a holder. Less work in the long run.

Oh - and I hear ya on the Homespun. I knit a coat out of the stuff about 3 years ago - what an experience!


I agree with you and Bron... put those stitches on a stitch holder.


Homespun is *not* fun to knit with, no doubt! I knit the union square poncho for my Mom out of it last year. The only thing I can say is that it just gets softer and softer as time goes on. Nice stuff for the long haul.


I, uhmm *cough* do like ponchos too :) I think they are very practical and a fun knit!
Do bind off, and then pick up again, this will give you a lot more stability for the whole thing. Bound off is always a bit tighter than the regular knitting. Especially around the neck with a softer yarn, you do want to bind off and start again just to give it some more structure and stability.


The only reason I can think of to bind off those stitches is if the entire piece is heavy - the bind off and picking up of stitches will help keep the collar from stretching.


Sleeve-free sweater. I love that!
I love that poncho too. I can't wait to see it finished up. I love how it looks so far. I've used homespun before (didn't like it either) but the kind I bought striped for some reason. I guess they don't all stripe.
