Moonlit Poncho

Even though I was knitting virtually nonstop for the better part of 3 years, when I got into quilting a few months ago I was so overcome with infatuation for my new hobby that I dropped my needles for awhile. However, what better motivator for getting back into knitting than to do a gift knit for a loved one? I recently completed this Moonlit Poncho by Liz Capik for my mother-in-law.

The knit was very easy, but the silk yarn was not the best in the world to work with. Not only was it very intent on splitting, but it bled so much that my bathtub looks like something out of a horror movie. After 4 baths, it was still bleeding! It's a good thing I didn't combine this yarn with a light color.

I'm very pleased with the finished result, and hope my mother-in-law enjoys wearing it.
