Poncho

Okay all you knitters out there - be kind!
This is the first thing I have knit other than socks and one scarf. I didn't have a chart and it was my first time knitting cables ,I taught myself out of a book. The neck is wider than I really wanted but the length is just right, the points come right to my waist. the edges are not quite even and strait ,but I guess that comes with practice. I hope. I think it needs some fringe or a crocheted edging or something but I can't quite decide- any ideas? Plus any knitting /blocking tips would be very welcome.

I'm not a knitter but your cables look great to me!

Looks GREAT!!! And you were amazed that I had tried lace and so on. It looks wonderful, and I personally would say fringe if you want to keep it casual and crochet edge if you want it a bit more finished looking. I hope you wrote down your pattern. I like it enough that I would not mind doing one.
Tak to you soon

Knitting isn't my thing, so I can't help you much, Rachael. You did a great job on it tho! Congrats. :D

I love your poncho, Rachael. It looks really tiny on the picture, though!
