Fall is arriving, so I decided to knit a poncho. Ponchos are very trendy at the moment, but I was never fond of them earlier. It took some time for me to put a shawl on, and now I wear one almost every day, so maybe if I go into training I can do the same with a poncho? Certainly if it is a Rowan Kid Silk Haze poncho made completely in Shetland lace technique. I must tell you a little secret, I have become a bit too aware of the appearance of the finished details so I am purling every other row knitting it in the round to avoid the seam. Yes, of course I could have sticked to stockinette stitches, but that wouldn't be the same, so I am purling, and purling instead of just knitting a garter stitch item! So if I like the design very much I can stand a little inconvenience. By the way... I look forward to make the tassles :-), this time they are in the pattern from start. I like the pattern!
