I like stuff. You like stuff. Everybody likes stuff. Right? Well, of course! And today’s stuff is extra special.

Funny story. I decided that I’m finally ready for Denise needles, so I order them online. Not two hours later I’m talking to my Bonez and he mentions that he ordered me the same Denise needles that morning. Gha?! What a sweetheart. So’s I cancel my order and patiently wait for my anniversary interchangeable needles.

Okay, so it might not be a funny story at all. But I got my needles today, so there! And they’re pretty darn swell. I played around with ’em a bit and swatched for my niece’s poncho on the 11’s. [purrrrrrrr] Smooth action.

I’m using Berroco Lullaby in Willy Winky (a purple, blue and green blend that’s v. soft and cuddly). The pattern that I’m looking at is the Harlot Poncho. But you see where I’ve made some yarn-over drops (the lacy, kind of open part)? Well, I kind of like that too and want to incorporate it in the design. Plus, I’m thinking of changing the neckline. So pattern-schmattern, it’s only a suggestion.

    I feel like I should say something supportive like…”Way to take control of knitting! Make that pattern your own!!” But it’s just soooo cheesey…and who likes cheese????

    I like cheese. What’s wrong with a little cheese? I love what you did with pattern, you go girl! (How’s that for an overused cheesy phrase?)

    I like cheese, your yarn, the pattern, your changes to the pattern, and further more, I want to knit one too! I think I have some yarn around here somewhere….

    You go girl! Take that suggestion and run with it.

    For the sanctity of this blog, let it be known that all cheese is welcome and, in fact, encouraged.

    Let the cheesing commence!

    Oh. And keep your eyes peeled for news of a poncho-a-long. It shouldn’t be long now.

    Atta girl. Make it your own and screw the pattern. (That’s what I would do.)
