THIS!

And WHY o why o gentle reader did the Mondo Condo Poncho end up a pile of washed skeins?

Answer: MICROSeRF XP SERVICE PACK 2!

They do it again! Update your computer to protect it from security breaches and SMACKX!

It might

– introduce all sorts of traps in other programs

THE STRESS drove me to FROG MY PONCHO!

Now, granted, I was rejecting this garment out of hand to begin with. I’ve been wearing it for quite awhile and just couldn’t get into it.

I LOVE THE DESIGN. I will be making another one very soon…

I HATE the POOCH!

    AWwww, what a bummer! I’d been wondering if the Mondo Condo had morphed into the Lacy Poncho. And, hey, nice 2-tone Ribby! Are you revising that pattern? Because I’ve got the original in the to-knit queue ~

    THANKS! A new gauge, several-size pattern for the Ribby Cardi will launch sometime in late October!

    I am totally excited by how this came out – I’ve tweaked the neckline and made it in my fave, wortsted weight gauge for some Fall Fun!

    Thanks to EVERYONE who wrote and requested this version!

    Noooo! *fortunately* my upgrade to SP2 went smoothly – I was terrified for a week [at least] to download it. DH would *kill* me if I frogged my poncho – though I *really* kinda want to b/c I never wear it due to the turtle neck. I wish I could just rip it out from the top [where I started] and make it sans t-neck. Maybe someday. *sigh* Ooh – just noticed – LOVE the ribbie cardi to the right – Great!

    Oh that makes me sad – I Loved that poncho and was awaiting the pattern. But your right, anything that makes a butt look bigger is simply not acceptable!
    Wouldn’t it be great if we could just frog a virus!
