Who Says Blue Is Just For Boys

A sweet friend of ours had a darling little girl ... one year ago (a theme going here perhaps) and I just couldn't get my act together for a gift. She is a very practical girl and doesn't like excess ... so I came up with this:

A poncho. I followed these basic instructions but did the ripple stitch instead. I really like how it turned out. I wish I knew what yarn I used - somewhere between here and the Outer Banks I lost the info. It's a shame because it's awfully yummy.

Mama wears her beautiful locks long but usually has it pulled back or up ... a head wrap was in order.

Did I mention that Mama and baby have the same clear blue gorgeous eyes as this yarn ... who says blue is just for boys - bah!

That blue is lovely! The poncho, super, the head wrap...very nice in the blue. I've got things to add to the crochet along but I have to wait until they have been gifted. Wouldn't want to ruin any surprises:o)
