Behold the wonders of big honkin' needles

Name: Flirty poncho/shawl
Yarn: Colinette Giotto in #148 Caramel, Classic Elite Premiere in #5299 Dried Cherry, & Plymouth Colorlash in #11
Start date: 5-22-05
Finish date: 5-22-05
Comments: Check out those needles! It was like knitting with PVC pipe. It took me about 2 hours to knit. No kidding. I have been a knitting fiend these past few days. The FO's in 3 days. Not bad, not bad!

I love Colinette Giotto... I think the colorways are so fabulous. I love using the big needles for projects--I have made several scarves/wraps with 35s, and 50s.

Looks great, Amy! :)
