...sometimes you run across an easy pattern, make it up and then simply fall in love with the garment. Such was the case with the McCall's 6209 brown tweedy wool poncho that I made last month (view A blogged about here). Love it, and have probably worn it six times already. Every time I'd put it on I'd think "I really need to make a black one". I am sure I'll get to wear it some even though our winters are so short. Well, this weekend I finally got around to making it and got repeat love results. Wore it yesterday and again today. It brought lots of complements, and one lady asked if she could feel it. I had to let her - and had to laugh because I can't count the number of times I've asked to feel the fabric of somebody's garment hoping they didn't think I was crazy. What can I say - I'm a fabric feeler!
