Baby Poncho

Babies don't wait for my schedule.  I have not been knitting this summer. I discovered that one of my coworkers is pregnant. I learned in late August that she has never had anyone knit anything for her. I felt duty-bund to correct that situation.
I've actually made two items for her, but am showing only one right now. The pictured item is a poncho, which seems unusually appropriate for infants. A poncho can work really well with the straps of a car seat.

The second item is a deep rose-colored shrug. I will show that in my next post. This will be my first attempt at killing (steam blocking) acrylic knits. I expect the poncho and the shrug to look smooth and drape nicely after that.
