This, though, was not the same type of poncho! I was adding a hood and, oh my goodness, it threw me for a loop! I was sit staring at the fabric and the panels I had made, wondering how the heck I'm going to add this hood.
Finally, today, I had a breakthrough. My poncho is pretty much done, except for some fine-tuning and a few extra knots, and I hand-stithed the hood to ensure it would sit right.
Now... is it perfect? HA! I fail at being a perfectionist, but I am so happy to have this extremely warm hooded poncho (I love hoods). And because I'm proud of essentially be done, I chose it as my apparel for today! YAY!!!
