Araucania Nature Cotton adoration continues...
I bought this stuff first, and fell in love instantly. The Cotton Ho™ in me was ecstatic to find a thick/thin cotton that had character, affordable AND could be machine washed and damp dried. This lilac stuff is in the middle of being turned into a slimmer banff-based cardigan with a zipper front. It knits up quickly, is soft and I love the color variations. But it's stalled cause I'm working on something else.

See, I got more. And two nights ago, I decided I had to have a poncho. But not one with a pointy-in-the-privates in front. This one is more like the Needful Yarns' short flat-bottomed version. Different at the top, but I'm knitting it in the round, top down.

I am SO in love. At this rate, it should be done by the end of the week. Eee!
