poncho love


A dear family friend made this adorable poncho for Kitty. It won't fit her until next winter, but in the mean time I am enjoying just looking at it hanging up in her room. Look at the beautiful stitch she used. I have no idea what stitch it is, but I love it. I can't wait until it fits. I am thinking one in a grown up size for me would be nice, perhaps in shades of green and brown.

I love ponchos, do you?

Addicted. Only in a latent kind of way. I'm yet to embrace my own grown up person version - just give me another winter or two!

Oh, my, that is gorgeous... I would love one for my Little Miss M (have to get grandma onto that one!). I have had some adult type poncho's, but it's a bit like scarves and hats, I think you have to be the right sort of person to pull them off!

I too love ponchos, I remember my mum making me one and another matching one for one of my dolls. I want to make one for my little miss, just need to finish off a couple of WIPs first.

It is beautiful! I have a red one that I found in my cupboard last night. Shame I had forgotten about it over winter - it would have been great over my post-baby/chocolate belly.

I love ponchos and that one is just beautiful - I used to love wearing them when I was kid. I had a crochet one in fantastic colours.
