I finally finished my black poncho a couple of days ago. This was an easy project to do but it certainly wasn't fast (which it should of been). The pattern is simply 2 rectangles made with *dc, ch 1, dc*. With it being so dark it was hard for me to see at night so quite a few times I woke up with a headache the next morning (I guess from overworking my eyes) - and also with me working part-time now my crochet time has been seriously compromised. I don't like that - but what can you do?
