Writing to pipe files command


I am a newbie to Linux and am trying to create a pipe file with the below command:

mkfifo pone

Now I am trying to write data to the file with the following command on the command prompt:

echo asdadsasdasdasdasdasd >./pone

But after i enter this command- the screen hangs up and doesnt proceed ahead.
Same thing happened when I tried writing using:
gedit pone

Can anyone help me resolve this issue?
