Well, thanks to some wonderful help from someone on the discussion board I have finished my first poncho!

Please excuse the color of the Bright & Lofty yarn used for the poncho.  My hubby picked that out all by himself and was so proud!  I thought it was hideous but have to admit it looks fine for an 8 year-old girl once it's worked.

The scarf is made with Coats & Clark Foxy in "aquarium", one strand held together with a dark green acrylic WW yarn -- read that tip on Craftster too and it is now the only way I'll work with any "furry" yarn!  I loved the scarf so much that I had to make one for myself too.  Mine is more narrow & doesn't have fringe & I can't wait for another cold front to reach us here in TX so that I can wear it!

I didn't mean for the poncho and scarf to be worn together! lol

nice job! I read the "help" thread about this pattern, looked tricky, glad you figured it out!!! Great colors for an 8YO! And who needs a cold front to wear a scarf??? Remember grunge??? people were wearing flannel and beanies in 80 degree weather!!! 'Tis the age of the scarf! Wear it with pride!!! Cheesy
