OK, Crackpots, here it is: the quickest, easiest project I have finished in a long time. As I may have told most of you, I wanted a “wrap” that would be warm, but not as warm as a winter coat, dressy enough to wear to a local symphony concert, and neutral enough in color to wear with almost anything. So this is it.

It was knit on size 15 needles, and the gauge was 2 sts/in.! Rebecca, since you seem to be interested in the technical specs, I used Lamb’s Pride Bulky yarn, an 85% wool/15% mohair blend, in “oatmeal,” along with “Jewel” yarn from Universal Yarn, Inc. It’s a blend of 57% acrylic, 28% mohair, 9% cotton, and 6% polyester.

You all may notice that, even though I have chopped off my head in the photo in the interests of internet privacy, you need only look at the shoulders to determine which Crackpot is modeling the poncho.

    Very cool, Ann! Or warm, if that is more appropriate.
