What are you most proud of? I'm knitting Mamma Mia out of handspun wool my mom spun and natural kettle dyed herself and natural wool I spun on a drop spindle. I also used Manos Maxima 100% Extrafine Merino Wool Kettle Dyed from Uruguay I bought at Navarro Knitts in Fort Bragg, CA to complete the poncho.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? The project is a little tricky every time you add a new V pattern, and it's a bear to take out if you make a mistake because of the twist stiches that make the V pattern.

I ran into problems knitting the poncho. The fingers were 8' on the instructions but since I used handspun I had to make them 10 1/2 inches long. After I completed the garment I could have made them 9 -10 inches. I like the poncho but I'm getting used to the style.
