I spent Thanksgiving at my in-laws which is sort of in the middle of nowhere north of Baltimore. I brought with me yarn to finish the red cowl (which resulted in 30 or so leftover yards) and this ball of superwash merino that apparently hates me. After ten attempts at trying to make something out of it, I went searching for something else to work on.
I’ve always been a fan of the free patterns Drops releases every season. I was searching through their Winter 08/09 line when I came across the baby poncho. I instantly knew I had to make it for Izzy. With a moss stitch hoot and raglan design, it was a perfect quick knit to keep her warm. It knit up super fast, just 48 hours of somewhat intense knitting and it was complete. I cannot wait to give it to her during our special cousins-only Christmas (Izzy’s Matt’s cousin, Jeremy’s, four month old daughter).
What the dirty details? Those are on Ravelry here.
