Easy Folded Poncho - Ta Da!

image 
I finished and blocked my Easy Folded Poncho before 2016 ended!  This is the Easy Folded Poncho (with cowl) from Churchmouse Yarns and Teas.  I bought the kit they sell because I figured that would be easy.  Mine is the charcoal colorway.  It was a super easy knit, and if you take a look at the projects in Ravelry, someone figured out how to make it without any seaming (so it's super fast too)!  It's all stockinette, so it's nice when you need something for your hands to do but not your brain.  I'm also really happy with the way it looks on.

A poncho is essentially a socially acceptable adult security blanket.  This design has a more modern, streamlined shape than the ponchos from the 70's, so while it still keeps you warm and cozy, it doesn't get in your way when you're actually doing things while wearing it.  Unfortunately, it's 70 degrees here today, so I don't actually need to be warm and cozy.  Later this week, it's supposed to get cold again, so hopefully I can actually wear it outside the house!

I haven't decided yet, but I'm super tempted to add a little embroidery along the lower edges in an ivory color.  Still thinking...
