Ponchos for everyone

By Robin Dearing

In an attempt to shake the cobwebs out of my fuzzy brain, Bill and I decided to ride the motorcycle to Cedaredge for their Apple Fest on Sunday.

It was a bright sunny day and I desperately needed to get out of the house. We bundled up in our riding leathers and took off. It was glorious. I love riding on the back of Bill’s Triumph. There’s nothing to do, but still and enjoy the ride. The western Colorado landscape is so beautiful and our fall has been spectacular.

Cedaredge is a quaint little burgh. Everyone was out having a good time, eating fried food and listening to homespun music. I had a cinnamon roll followed by a Navajo taco. I’m regretting the extra pounds showing up on my scale, but I needed some fatty comfort food. Plus, what’s a festival without splurging?

We walked around the entire festival a couple of times. There were many vendors selling all sorts of crafts and what not. I wandered into Marianne King’s craft booth (MK Designs out of Montrose). She crochets various items and I was drawn to her ponchos. I touched the soft yarn and I knew I had to have one.

Yes, that’s right. I bought myself a crocheted poncho and I love it. I’ve been wearing it all the time and it’s so cozy. I especially like to wear it while I’m waiting for my mom to get her daily radiation treatment. Those hospital waiting rooms are chilly and my new poncho is like wearing a cozy, little blanket.

Take a look:


Cute, huh? Funny how a little thing like a homemade poncho can lift one’s spirits.
