Miss Wiggles announced last September that her poncho was too small and it was going to be cold soon! I made that poncho* for her last November (2015) and it was only just big enough for her to put over her head, so I wasn’t surprised that she outgrew it quickly.

Last winter I made a different poncho for Fiona.
Fiona’s “Little Sophia” poncho, January 2016.
This pattern** was so easy to make and the nicest thing is, I can easily add more rows to it as Fiona grows taller (as long as I hang on to the leftover yarn!).
Using this same pattern, I whipped up a poncho for Liana in about a week.

Her mommy sent me a picture of Liana wearing one of the hats I crocheted for Liana last year.

I can see that I am going to have to crochet a matching hat or two for this year’s poncho!
Ponchos are fun to make. Do you have something that you enjoy making over and over again?

Miss Munchkin has a birthday coming up next month – can you believe she will be eight? No way!
Pink Girly Leg Warmers
I showed her a Pinterest pin of Girly Leg Warmers and asked if those were something she would wear. Her response? “Oh yes! So cute!”
And here they are, completed with time to spare before I need to send her birthday package in the mail. I hope they fit!
I crocheted the leg warmers with Loops & Threads Charisma Baby yarn (Pink), a very soft yarn that I also used to make both Miss Munchkin and Miss Kitty ponchos Christmas 2012.
I am super pleased with them. In fact, I’m tempted to make myself a pair, albeit in a slightly different color!

Sunday Assignment 6 – Word: Valentine
I am participating in a weekly photo challenge and this week’s project was the word “Valentine.” Here’s a crocheted poncho for my granddaughter, Miss Munchkin, along with the Valentine’s Day card I sent her. I made a similar poncho last month, but it was too big around at the neck and too short at the arms! That’s what I get for attempting something without measurements. Hopefully this one will fit her.
My apologies for the lousy background! I should have checked the quality of the picture before I packed and mailed the poncho!
