family heirloom

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...

  12. 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.

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

  23. 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!
