Cute Little Poncho - Finito!
I spent the evening applying fringe (not a very fun job) and I recruited the princess to quickly model it (she's in her pajamas, late for bedtime, and it's before I had a chance to trim the long ends on the fringe tassles.)
She totally loves it ("Mom, can I sleep in it?") and it was fun to make (except, as I mentioned, for the fringe part.) All in all, a fun and happy end-of-summer project. And, of course, a fitting Herculean Effort! Thanks for the shout-out, Alison! Let's do the '06 Winter Olympics for sure!
But wait, what came in the mail today?
Woo-hoo! Won't this be fun? BTW, I'm making the cardigan, not the vest as shown on the instructions. Next post, I'll update on my first read-through of the instructions, shopping for supplies, and research accomplished on how to get started.
I love that poncho. How beautiful. I will be "Ponchoing" soon for Erika.

What an adorable item on a darling kid. I can understand her not wanting to take it off!

Hello! I'm from Australia. Have been searching the net for hours, and have seen the best poncho I have ever seen - yours! Please would you send me the pattern? I want to make it for my 8 year old daughter Chelsea. Thankyou so much!!
