More mini poncho pics

You asked for them, Karen, so here they are! More mini poncho pics than you can shake a stick at. What a bizarre expression that is...

Here is a close-up of the flower:

Here is a close-up of the neckline:

And here is the whole thing as it looks when it's on my stairs and not my somewhat well-padded self (gimme a break - it's baby weight! Now, how long can I use that excuse? Until the next one's in kindergarten, right?):

I'm still not convinced I'm a poncho person, and I feel ever so slightly like a tool when I'm wearing it in public, but I like it despite all that. One problem I discovered yesterday - the purse stitch is gorgeous but it catches on anything and everything (zippers, my son's toes, tree branches...).

For those of you who are wondering (and to further irritate my hubby), here is a picture of the scrape on the van. See, it's really not too bad. Just a scratch, really. And I'll say it again - he hit us! Does that make you feel better, my dear?

I've made some good progress on my Christmas gifts as well. Click here to read about what I'm knitting for the brother-in-law and father-in-law, and click here to read about what I'm making for my mother-in-law. Unless, of course, you are one of those people and don't want a spoiler!

Aren't you impressed with all my knitting? I'm impressed that my kids are letting me do all this blogging, quite honestly. Thank you, Noggin!

Thank you for the close ups!!! :) You are so good to your fans. Loved the poncho when I couldn't see the details that well, love it even more now. Good job - and I know what you mean about not being sure you're a poncho person. Maybe it's an acquired fashion taste?

I admired that poncho from the IK Staff Project and thought about making it too. I started the lace one, but got a little bored with it and dropped it. But I may have to go back and revisit when I have a few more FOs.

I think we need to see you model the poncho. :) I am sure that you don't look like a tool at all.

Look at the close-ups of your knitting- absolutely flawless! I am truly impressed. I'll leave comments about the Christmas gifts in a spot where inquiring recipients won't be looking. :) Again, awesome job on the poncho!
