Raspberry Charlotte Ponch-ette

Aside from needing to tuck in my ends and block my work, my Raspberry Charlotte Poncho Ponchette is done.

For it's length, and airy-ness, I found it to be incredibly warm.  It will be perfect to wear inside the Radisson at the upcoming Conference!  And in my kids school should I opt to return and be the volunteer librarian again.

Since I was discussing how I altered Doris' pattern yesterday, I'll add that I changed the finishing too.  The bottom shells consist of a ch-3 picot, alternated with Irish Clones Knots instead of crocheted baubles.  I also changed the neckline, opting to keep it simple and not to bring it in. 

If I can get Mini~Dee to stop chasing butterflies long enough, I'll try to get a picture of how it looks on her as a flirty little skirt worn over leggings ...



Edited @ 4PM to add picture (on right) of Mini~Dee, who reminds me of a beautiful fairy while wearing this ponchette/skirt.  :)

How charming!  I love what you've done with this design.  Can't decide which one of you truly OWNS this... Dee or MiniDee!  :-)
