On my hook - Granny Stripe Poncho

I have always wanted to make myself a crochet poncho, but never got round to do it. On my last visit to the yarn shop, I saw this beautiful yarn by La Vita yarns (no affiliation) that felt amazingly soft to the touch, and right then and there, I decided they are the ONE for my long-wished poncho.
And I couldn't have made a better choice! The yarn is amazing and when I tried it on, it felt spectacularly soft, snug and warm. I even paraded around the house with it, showing it off to my family, not being able to contain my delight! 
I think it's the perfect thing for this season when it's quite chilly in the evenings and mornings. I would have chosen pastel colors for my poncho, but there were none from this producer in the shop. The yarn shop owner has such a terrible taste in colors, I wonder how he manages to sell anything. However, these are a true gem, and I am satisfied with my earthen tones :)
