Sorry about the fuzziness - here's my sister, knitting her very first item - a poncho! It's Yarn Harlot's pattern (see the sidebar), in a very nice soft and thick bouclÃ©. The colour is called "blueberry", and it's got a nice bluey-greyey-purpley variation in it. She's already had to rip it back once, through about 10 rows, which for her was almost four hours of work. Poor kid! She realised though that between having her increases wandering all over and having flipped over her needles so she was working back across the row and thus had 4 rows of purling on the front...it needed to be done.
