Thank you muchly everyone for your input! I love being able to check with Crafster when I'm doubting myself!!!
I think I'll find a warmer winter home for it -since it's bitter cold, here too.
I'd say I'm about half done right now. I will have to put it away this week as the family is arriving for our vow renewals & I hope to knit a poncho for my 8 month old niece while she's here!
I will post a picture when she's all finished!
