An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

I've finished one section of the poncho. If you use a different yarn for each row, you're going to have a lot of ends to deal with!
I debated whether to sew in the ends after each row or wait until I'd completed the section. I decided on the latter. It's easier to have needle and scissors on hand and get on with it, rather than having to keep looking for them. Also, I had to undo a section when the sides weren't straight, so I was glad I had made that choice. I threaded the ends into the back of the work. I think they're pretty well invisible:
I learnt to crochet as a child, but I haven't done a lot of it. I'm surprised how quickly it goes along. No wonder people crochet blankets and afghans.
