Freelancing....

The Baby Poncho body is finished.  
 Don't judge it yet, please. I have to wash it, add buttons and make a hat. 
I'm freelancing now, but I don't want to make a hood. 
The Pattern calls for making a hood and sewing it on. 
I have decided a hat will do.  
I'm feeling kind of sassy this morning so I'm the boss of this knitting as we say in our knit world. 

My little gnome has a new hat too.
He didn't want a hood.....
A little red spray paint and he's ready for the season
 
 Finally I'm using Pic Monkey again for fun fun fun and I played around with this picture of my yard.  

I like the effect.....reminds me of the pictures we have in a drawer taken in the 70s with a polaroid.  

What do you remember from the 70s????

That is an adorable poncho!! I think a hat will be darling with it! Yes indeed you are the boss of the knitting. I keep telling mine that but I'm not sure it is listening!

Memories of the 70's--The Vietnam war ended and the Air Force had us (DH, kids and me) traveling all over Europe and the U.S. They couldn't decide what to do with us so every 6 months we were heading out to a new base. Thankfully the kids remember it as a fun time!!

Oh my gosh .... badly dyed hair and bell bottom corduroy pants. LOL I remember of baby poop green Mustang that I had and a forest green Boss 302 Mustang that my boyfriend drove. And then, at the very end of the 70's, I remember a very small wedding to the a very different man (he was a Chevy guy). I kept him in spite of his wayward leanings in the car arena.

The poncho is really cute...and I know the finishing touches will make it an irresistible garment for a little one.

I'm not familiar with the app you used on the photograph...but I like the effect.

The 70's? College...1st trip to Europe...first real job...first car...lots of bell bottoms ...watching hippies from afar...and an end to the Vietnam War.

Adorable poncho. I like being the boss of my knitting, too.

Memories of the 70s - my first teaching job and first car, polyester pant suits, charm bracelets.

The 70s? Drinking Harvey Wallbangers (how did we drink that stuff, yuck)at the disco, Saturday Night Fever, the BeeGees and the (now)tacky, synthetic clothes I wore. But it was a blast! BTW, that baby poncho is way sweet!

The poncho is lovely and I love your gnome. 70s, I remember having way too many pairs of corduroy pants, my favorite as a kid were the ones with apples printed on them. I had a shirt with a matching apple on it, and decorative piping. I remember at one point, my mother, father, and paternal grandmother all had perms. {shudder}. And all our appliances were avocado green ...

I love it! It is cool being the boss of your knitting. I rarely am brave enough to make modifications but when I do I am always glad I did.

The 70's? Hmmmmm.....I think I missed it as I was stuck in the 60's. I was too hippified and could never do the disco thing that my younger sisters were into. I do remember a lot of harvest gold, burnt orange and avocado green around the house though.

Love the poncho you are knitting. No judgement here, as it looks quite lovely.

Pretty poncho, Kathy! And as for the 70s my favorite memory is of marrying my husband...a wonderful man who loved me!

I remember my very first camera, a Kodak instamatic that took 110 film! With a flipflash!! It was the beginning of my love of point and shoot photography!

I remember the '70s. I still don't like bodysuits or bellbottoms, but I have warmed up to ponchos and platform shoes. ;)
