Recycled Poncho

I started out 7-8 years ago and made a table runner for Thanksgiving. Then I decided I really liked the colors, and made enough squares for the fronts and back of a sweater, and planned to knit the sleeves. It sat and sat, I decided I didn't have enough brown for the sleeves, and couldnt' find anymore. So I sewed it together in a poncho. And it hung on my peg rack awhile, never worn though, since in the end I realized I'm not a Poncho Person. So the other day I took it apart and made a table runner...
And a square "table topper".
And now I'm happy. I really like the colors(these pix don't show them very well, alas): espresso, milk chocolate, cinnamon, saffron, mustard(spicy colors), plum, violet, hot pink, magenta, coral, persimmon and teal and royal in Tahki Cotton Classic and Classic Elite Provence.
