I have been working on some of my old works in progress. I’ve gone pretty far on the striped raglan- only button bands and bottom hem to go. I am nearing the end of the poncho. I think there are only 20 rows to go. Once I’m done with the collar, I’ll be doing my very first steeking. I’m nervous about it but I’m sure it will all be fine. It’s curling but after a fitting with Fabi, she likes it like that. She doesn’t want it to get longer. The bottom hem is three rows of single crochet.

The collar is the piece that is taking longest to figure out. I don’t have a pattern for that, I’m making it up as I go. I’ve had to rip it out once. It is single crochet in the round but the wrong side is the right side.
