I love it - not only is it the cutest poncho ever, but it took 3 days, busted a whole freezer bags' worth of bulky yarn, and made Little Miss Maya here feel like a princess even with the unwoven ends trailing below her Cinderella nightie. No actual pattern involved either, just some eyeballs, some markers, and a pair of 17 circs. Could not be easier. Sorry to the KS, as we left off the big flowery thing. Overkill.


Now what to make next? Am loving these instant gratification projects. Must pick another!
Oh, and the cocktail to go with the low maintenance poncho - what's more instantly gratifying than an already bottled, no mixing or even pouring necessary BEER? And here's an Amber Lager in the fridge just for me.

Cute! I made my Z girl a poncho too. The Manolo, he only dislikes ponchos for adults.
Nice husband sweater too! My husband "let" me go to the KnitOut even though there was a Pats game and a Sox game. Now that's love.

Cute, cute, cute! What a great stash buster.

Too bad about the flower, though.

Ponchos are really perfect for little girls ... and your daughter looks so happy in hers. What a fun project!
