Easter Style

A repeat  performance by my orchid!
Today is a very important  day to Christians;
we celebrate not just the hope of what a Savior born into the world can do (Christmas)
but rather what the man/God Savior, Jesus Christ, did accomplish!
The Lord has risen!
He has risen indeed.


 I knit this small poncho to keep my shoulders warm during church.
I recently purchased one of these vintage machines that hooks up to my knitting machine --
 I drew a scaled version of the poncho I wanted,  entered my swatch information and then I knit!
Each row I knit advances the drawing so I know how many stitches to decrease and when!
Nifty, huh?!
I added a bit of a scalloped edge, knit away and voila, I have 2 halves
which seamed together while I watched a movie with recuperating husband. 
 Then I washed it and blocked it-and I will wear it for church today!


(Knit with 2 skeins of Deborah Norville's Apaca Dance worsted weight yarn)
