~ poncho is finished ~

I swear I will never use the bumpy, loopy boucle yarn again.  This stuff was such a pain to crochet with - I had to force myself to keep going.  Not fun at all.  I do like my poncho though.  :)

  1. Your poncho turned out great and it's a pretty color too. That isn't my favorite type of yarn to work with either. The colorways are pretty and it's always tempting to buy though. I used what I had a couple years ago for V-stitch blankets. Hope you have a great day Debi. Take care, Heather

  2. Your poncho is looking lovely and must be soft. But I too discovered the hard way that such yarn is hopeless for crocheting. I admire your perseverance. Your mannequin is very hip with the glasses and hat :)
    Have a lovely week.

  3. Your poncho is beautiful!
    But uncomfortable working with a thread may turn out to be a nightmare!
    Have a nice day, Debi!

  8. That looks beautiful, Debi! Seems we all agree that boucle can be a pain in the rear, but I'm always fascinated by it. I can only work with it on projects that don't involve having to work into the chain foundation. Loops are made & you work in the loops (I'm not good at explaining, - sorry!). I am very impressed that you stuck with it and have such a lovely garment to show for it. I really like that poncho!

  11. Your poncho is looking great, Debi:) I know crocheting with such fancy yarns is not as entertaining as they look. I have worked with an eyelash yarn and had to crochet it very loose so that I can identify the chains by touch, I crocheted like a blind. I might give another try for the eyelash yarn, I just add few lines in entire project, that saves me from getting mad:) I am planning to use it for crafting like winding around a pot etc...just can't throw away after spending on it.

  13. I've had such an experience before when I made a scarf with yarn which had mohair type hiary texture. working with it wasn't a pain, but unraveling it was. the stitches used to get stuck and difficult to pull out. And I'd made a mistake many rows below. :-( I haven't bought that yarn again. But now the scarf is finished and it's so warm :-)
    your poncho has come out very well!! :-)
    Have a lovely week!

  14. It's lovely Debi and you deserve a medal for persevering with that yarn, it's awful to crochet with. :) xx

  15. Oh girl, that yarn is the absolute worst to crochet. I made some scarves out of it and the only way I could work with it was to knit it. You deserve a metal for not throwing it in the trash. Your poncho turned out lovely.....I say that you deserve an award for not giving up on it!
