Please tell me that I am not the only one who is fed up with Martha Stewart and her silly poncho. I was reading the news on the local paper's website and found this gem of an article... pattern and all. Ugh.
No cover-up here: Poncho is hot

I have nothing against ponchos in general, but I don't think that there is anything special about this particular poncho. Just because Martha wore it, the whole dang country decides they need to knit or crochet something similar. Absurd! I have seen many patterns for more stylish ponchos, and, not to be a yarn snob or anything, but Lion Brand Homespun??? For Martha??? I knitted a couple of scarves out of this stuff when I started knitting last year, and they haven't held up well at all. (I'm really not a yarn snob, I still wear one of my LBH scarves occassionally.)
