Lola's Poncho

It's done! I made it quite a bit smaller than the first one, used different colors in a soft cotton and a larger crochet hook so the fabric is a little more open and airy for Spring and cool Summer nights. Carly and Jeremie like to take the kids to the drive-in a lot during the Summer and this will be like a little wearable blanket for Lola.

And here is the model showing her new "shirt" as she calls it. It is still a little long, but she will grow into it.
She showed us that she can still do her favorite thing, read books, while wearing her new poncho.
(that black blur in the right hand corner of this picture is Lola's best doggie friend Zinnia. Whenever Lo is here, Zin is right next to her!)
Mommy had to step in to try to get Lola to stand still for pictures but as you can see, she is always moving! Oh well, the most beautiful part of her is crystal clear...that beautiful face! Happy Mother's Day everyone!

Thanks Melissa and Paula. These little ponchos are so simple to make...Maybe by the Fall i'll have my sizes down better and i'll make her a warmer version for the cool weather to come.

Just stopped by again to say that I just watched the movie "Miss Potter" about Beatrix Potter (Renee Zelwigger, Emily Watson, etc) and loved it. I think you'd like it.

Hi CM! Thanks for the good wishes! I'm having trouble keeping up too...I am working on opening an Etsy shop, as well as the extra work in the gardens, and the house and the art work....oiy....
I have Miss Potter on my Netflix list. I'll move it up near the top of the list. Thanks for the tip! I love movie reviews!!!
