FO- Poncho Viva
Pattern: Poncho Viva from "One Skein Wonders."
Yarn: 2 & 1/3 skeins of Filatura Di Crosa Multicolor in color #3053 (Red, Raspberry & Blue)
Needles: Knitted flat on US 7 circulars

This pattern was a breeze- basically garter & garter drop-stitch the whole way through w/ one seam to sew when finished.

The full picture gives you an idea of the shape- though this was BEFORE blocking, which I was *so* glad I did. I was unsure if I should- the yard in 60% mohair & 40% acrylic, but it made a huge difference. The 2nd pic is better lighting and gives you a closer look at the stitches.

that looks great! I bet you will wear it a lot. I'm always amazed how blocking can change an item.
