So, the poncho is finished! The hand dyed combined with baby pink yarn worked perfectly.
The yarn is all 8ply, which gives a lovely, light, yet warm feel to the garment.
At this point my little model decided that Mum had really taken enough photographs already.
We escalated into silliness.
And you know you're pretty much done when it gets to this point!
Anyway, I'm super happy with how the poncho came out, it was a big experiment for me as I made the design from scratch. Now the question is whether to make more for the Etsy shop, what do you think?
