Little Red Poncho

© Little Red Poncho

I only have 8 skeins of this yarn.
It is a discontinued yarn so that limits what I can make.
I wanted a red sweater but I guess a red cropped poncho will have to do.
This yarn is very stiff when wet but dries to luxurious softness.

100% Bamboo, 38 yards/50 g ball.
Hand wash. No dryer. No iron.
Color # 0005/Red, Lot # B-016, 8 x Yarn Balls
Needle: US10 6.0mm

The OCD Shorts

© The OCD Shorts

I have a yard of fabric left from 'The OCD Skirt' project.
The pattern is from some old stock I found locally for 25 cents each.
It is Butterick 5457 shorts pattern in size 10 by John Kloss.
I made some minor changes to the waistline and hemline
to accommodate for the fabric pattern.
