Finally-Finished Moonlight Mohair Poncho

I was up til 4:00 AM, but so happy to finish this. I made this for my mom, who loves ponchos. It started as a pattern, but then I ended up winging the whole thing and ended up staying up doing the edging last night so I didn't forget how I started it, so 4:00 AM it was done!

I used a Brittany M hook (9 mm) and four skeins of the Moonlight Mohair. The edging is a shell V-stitch edging.

It looks so much nicer in person and I hope she loves it. It's lightweight, but the mohair is super warm.

I am just so happy to be crocheting and actually finish in time for Christmas.
