like the night sky

I finished knitting this poncho over the weekend that I started in March. It is one long stockinette stitch rectangle which is then sewn so it can be worn over the head. It drapes beautifully. I must say it was very tedious to knit. In the end though this is beautiful and elegant when finished and worn. It would look nice paired with slim pants or a pencil skirt. I bought 5 skeins of this inky blue color but, only used four and the tiny flecks remind me of the starry sky. I've always loved that time of day on a summers night when it switches to this color briefly before complete darkness.
