Beginning Holey Moley

Sorry for the blurry photo. I’m running late this morning and I’m not going to take the time to correct this now. I’ll get some nice full sunlight shots of it later, I promise.

This pattern is very simple, but jeez, it was a pain to get started. First I was off by one stitch. Then I was doing a yo, k1, sl1 when I should have just been doing a yo, sl1. ( I always thought yo implied the following k1; my bad. ) Then I was slipping the stitch as to purl, not as to knit, which made doing a psso later in the pattern nearly impossible. Finally, after consulting my dear Caroline on the phone, I got it worked out. I must have cast this sucker on six times before finally getting it right.

But now it’s going and I’m very happy with it. The yarn feels just wonderful.

    I tried to find “lime green” CE Attitude in that close up of the poncho and … well, I guess its either too late for me or I’m missing something. It looks great.
