Tuesdays Ta-Dah - Ganesha Poncho

Today's little (or big) ta-dah was made with loads of love and intent and it came about quite by accident as I was feeling under the weather and while I was itching to hook a little something, my fuzzy head was really not up to any of the more difficult projects I had on the go. 

I remembered I had this "little" poncho on my list of things to do and well rather than making it for someone little I thought I would use up my odd balls of yarn and make a big something for myself. :-)

keeping warm while still stitching :-)

I am calling it the Ganesha Poncho as I have been going through a bit of healing lately and singing mantra's have been part of the process in getting my mind along the healthy path as well as my body. This poncho was hooked along largely with songs to Ganesha and also "healing" mantras in general. 

I found the pattern on Ravelry, you can find it over here if you would like to check it out. It was really easy and once you have made the foundation rows (2 rows) its all just going round and round till you feel you are finished. Too easy! 

I love my poncho...yes I do! Its so warm and filled with loving intent. Makes me feel all squishy inside. 

I was all for going outside and doing a proper photo shoot but there was no-one available to take pics outside in the cold. awwwww So please excuse the mess behind me there, that would be my kids homework pile. Assignments are on the agenda this week big time. ;-) 

Have a beautiful day! 

Hugs and smoochies xoxox
