The never-ending poncho has FINALLY come to an end.
And I’m not 100% in love with it. I have a tendency to fall in love with styles that look really good on tall, willowy women.
I’m not short by any means, but my curves are more than ample… I’m more gnarly stump and lithe willow. My Mom said it looks great… but Mom’s are like that.
It’s 100% cotton, so it is quite nice to wear, and has a decent drape. I’m going to wear it a few times and see if I fall more in love with it. I put a lot of time into it, so I’ve got to give it a bit of a chance. If my feelings don’t change, I think Samantha may be getting a new poncho for trailer nights around the camp fire.
Still.. even if I don’t keep it, two good things came out of it:
1) I used up almost all of that yarn and got it out of the stash, which feels good, and
2) I bought those boots this fall specifically to wear with the poncho….
And boy do I love those boots! I’ve worn them almost every day since I bought them. I’m trying to stop myself from buy a second pair in black
There’s always a silver lining! Plus… I never have to work on that darn poncho ever again! On to better things….
