Ok, it's been done for a couple weeks, so I'm only far behind everyone else in the knit-a-long, instead of "can you knit any slower?" behind everyone else. This group has been great and very supportive. It was a fabulous first knit along and I've VERY happy with my results. Friends are quite impressed with my poncho...a big thanks to Yarn Harlot for such a great design. There is a close-up of the fringe in my photo album (which is a bit dark, so I'll try to get a better photo).
