A simple poncho

We used to host these great outdoor movie nights in Oregon where we projected the movie onto a bedsheet and everyone stretched out on blankets. It was my favorite. The best warm weather activity. In Boston we bemoaned our lack of a backyard for over a year before realizing that we could project the movie in the living room if we turned the couch around. So last night we grilled with friends and enjoyed a double feature – Hugo and Be Kind Rewind…very different stories but both about the magic of movies.

By the time the credits rolled, I’d finished my poncho! About a month and a half ago I was inspired to make an updated poncho, and I perfectly synched its completion with the weather. Walking to the bus stop this morning I was cozy but not sweaty. Just enough wool to cut the chill.

Pattern: Easy Folded Poncho by Churchmouse
Needles: Size 7
Yarn: more of the frogged yard sale sweater
Mods: Increased the width by 2 inches and the length by 4 inches

What do you do for these kinds of photos? Clearly my go to move is to fiddle with the hem or my hair.
