When bad things happen to good kids....
I mentioned this pic over at Amy's this morning and then wondered if it really was as bad as I'd remembered.
Mom knit this poncho with all the leftovers she had (mohair, wool and acrylic) - then sewed a skirt to "match" it. I did get one detail wrong - I thought the fringe was white, not red. I suppose my subconscious has blocked certain aspects of my memory...I mean...I wore this outfit TO SCHOOL!!!!!!.
Is it any wonder I've been left with ponchophobia? Yes, Virginia, there IS a reason why I'm not in any of the "poncho knit-alongs" going on right now. :::shudder::::
1972 - a rainbow year indeed.
