The poncho is almost finished, I'm just sewing the neck onto it now so I'll be blogging photos of it soon. I am also going to be emailing Sirdar to tell them just how incorrect their pattern is. The lovely lady at wool4less managed to get me another ball of the wool I was using, with the same lot number and even sent it ahead of my other order so that I could finish it as soon as possible. How's that for service? I also ordered some more wool from them too, this beautiful pale grey colour - 3 balls for under £10 to make the project below (it's a Christmas present for a friend, but fear not, she doesn't read my blog)!
When the wool came, it did look a little garish and not at all like on the web pictures but now I've started knitting with it, I'm quite happy. I think it will look brilliant with my new khaki parka jacket and it's orange lining, don't you?!
I've got some new crafty books on the way too, from The Works as they had a free delivery offer last week, but they've not arrived yet.
Is anyone else doing Handmade365 inspired by Rachelle over at ted and agnes? I don't think I can do the whole year as my handmade itinery is not grand enough, but I've done it for the past two days.

Hope it's warm and sunny wherever you are. It's not here!
