When I was in Junior High and High School I had a poncho that was brown, orange, yellow and brown, it was not as bad as it sounds. I wore it to death and it was very warm. I have always liked ponchos so when I needed a project for my 3rd month at Camp Loopy I looked for a poncho pattern. You have to use 2 colors, at least 500 yards and a pattern you have not made before. I know knitting wool and winter garments when it is 100 out is kind of crazy but then you have never camped at Camp Loopy before.
BTW Hermione was trying to see what was in the box that made mommy squee with delight. She of course is too big for the box but nonetheless she tried to get into it.
