Do you have a tendency to wear the same thing for days in a row? I do! I fall in love with the way something looks and feels and I just wear it over and over again. Folks must think I go to sleep with the outfit on, but I do actually change into jammies and then the next day, on goes the “uniform” again.
The Breasy Picot Poncho, a new original design of mine, has been just that for me: a summer uniform, perfect for these warm days and air-conditioned spaces. This simple poncho is knitted out of a cotton/linen blend of yarn called Zooey, made by the Juniper Moon Yarn folks. I love this yarn and have knitted numerous garments and scarves out of it! For the poncho, I used large needles so as to achieve a very drapey and lace-looking fabric. Adding the eyelet rows and picots along the edges gives just enough interest to the knitting so as not to get bored with it!
You’re going to love this, if you are a knitter! Or if you know someone who knits, let them know! For the month of July, I’m offering a 50% discount on all my patterns AND my Drawing Ebook & Video. Go to my ETSY shop and use the code: HAPPYBIRTHDAY (all caps) when checking out! This is my Birthday month…hence the huge savings to you…a hobbit-like gift for the entire month!
You can read more of the details there on the ETSY listing to help you decide. If you live in the area, and want to purchase this awesome yarn, go to Knit One Smock Too in Winston-Salem, NC. They have a large selection of many colors of this lovely yarn!!
I hope everyone is finding something they might like from my ETSY shop this month! It’s not an everyday occurrence for me to offer this kind of discount. But the celebration is proving beneficial for many who have joined in the fun and used the discount already!! So much fun!!

I do wear the same thing days in a row! I thought I was a freak and am happy to know I’m not the only one!
Yay! I’m glad also to know I have a kindred spirit out there! 🙂
love the pattern, just bought it, and yes I do have a uniform of sorts, white t-shirt and jeans or dressy slacks
