Whenever we visit New Mexico, B’s mom gives me some beautiful creation that her mother made. B’s grandmother was an artist and probably ahead of her time because I always think her designs would fit well with trends today. This knit poncho is one of said creations. I think it might have been intended as a skirt, which I would like to try one day, too…

The only thing better than the shape and the color of this poncho is the fact that it was made for and given to you. I LOOOOOVE it!

What an awesome heirloom, I love the bright colors and wavy scalloped pattern. Your boots and bag are swoon-worthy as well!

This knit poncho is so cool! It's very different, and I love that it is handmade. Hand-sewn fashion is a million times better than store-bought.

The colours of this poncho are so beautiful, they really pop in combination with the classic black and brown. And these boots, everytime I see them I think these are the perfect brown leather boots! <3

That certainly is a stylish poncho! Sorry to be a pedant, but I think it might be crocheted and not knitted.

My favorite pieces are those that have some sort of meaning to me, especially those that my mom made or belonged to someone in my family. This is a great piece, although from the pictures I can't really see how it would be a skirt. Looking forward to seeing how you try it out though!
