This magnolia is one of so many that are cheering up the landscape in my area. My mother-in-law called them tulip trees. Their leaves are fragile and they blossom only until a spring zephyr pulls them onto the grass below. Yes I have played with the image on PicMonkey again.....

I finished the baby hat and washed the poncho with it this morning.
I sort of held my breath as it went into the washing machine.
If you want it to be well worn, then it has to be able to be easily washed, in my book.
Babies are spitty creatures..I know.
I wish I had a baby to model it for me. I think
the laundry bottle I wrapped it around, doesn't do it much justice. This is a gift for a friend at work who is expecting his first girl this summer. Aaron is so in love with his wife June. They are going to be great parents.
So to recap:
Yarn is acrylic: Debra Norville I think
Pattern is modified from :
from Vintage Knits for Modern Babies.
Many of her patterns have seed stitch borders.
The truth is, I don't like seed stitch one little bit.
I do love the poncho shape however and I may cast on another.
What would you suggest?
The pictures I took of it don't do it any justice.
I'm off to find a baby model.....
wish me luck!
