Knitting: Poncho

At Vogue Knitting Live I saw a poncho at The Spinnery booth and Jen and Angela convinced me I could actually make it.  I bought the pattern there and then later got the yarn to go with it from their website.  The yarn was gorgeous, and so great to work with.

I started completely over once, and frogged certain sections about 3 more times after that. I learned a few new skills: Short rows and yarn-over eyelets.  I am very happy with the finished result:

It’s my first knitted garment and it really built my knitting confidence!  Maybe I can return to my knitted chevron baby blanket again.
