poncho 002.jpg
I'm two-thirds of the way finished on this bottom edging for the Karis poncho, and have just those few inches left on the second ball of yarn. (You see what's left, curled around my knitting needles in the bottom of the photo.) Will have to start a third ball of Kidsilk Haze to finish the edging -- so close to being finished! Isn't that a lot of knitting, for two balls of yarn? (The pattern does call for three balls, but I was doubting that I would need that much.)

Karis is looking lovely Karen. Thank you for sharing your photos and experiences in Amish Country. I've always wanted to visit, but have not yet had the opportunity.

Angela, I hear that they have an Amish/Mennonite area north of Toronto . . . would be equally interesting, I am sure.

I didn't even mention the canned goods. Our tour stopped at a little roadside souvenir stand, one not run by the Amish. The souvenir stand had a ton of Amish goods, including jars and jars and jars of home-canned Amish foods, such as pickled eggs. I never even knew that one could pickle or can eggs -- or that one would even want to!

Karen, the poncho is beautiful and such a nice colourway!
