Knitting and Sewing

I realized yesterday EVENING that I needed a present for a one year old this coming Saturday.  Of course I found the cutest pattern for a poncho with cuffs but it was for knitting.  NO TIME!!!! ARGH!!!!  Than I thought of fleece!  I ran to the fabric store and picked out a pink, white and black print that has flowers and hearts.  I also chose black (textured) fleece for the cuffs and also decided to put in a shawl collar.  What about a pattern you ask?  No need.  I didn't have time to order the original pattern I saw and wanted a different collar and front.  After looking at measurements, taking some from my 2 year old, and guestimating I went for it.  I think knitting and seeing pieces grow helps you understand what should happen and how to work without patterns or make your own.  I also love fleece because it is so wide.  This gives you room to make errors and redo.......or make a second for your child!  :-).  After I put the fringe on the ponchos I'll post a picture.  Phew!  Just in the nick of time.  So Christmas is rather stressful for me because of last minute ideas I get for fantastic gifts for friends, family, their friends, the postman..........
