Poncho or a skirt
 My Grand daughter Cecilia's 5th birthday is April 1st.   I decided to make her this Poncho/skirt for her birthday gift.   I made it in Acrylic yarn thinking it would be easy for mom wash and wear.  I had read online that you can steam acrylic to block it and this poncho/skirt would need that to open up the lace.  I read it sets it permently and yes it works!!! :)   This is wonderful for me because I knit for children and most moms dont have the time to block them later. I pray it fits her and will post pictures of her wearing it if I can later.  Thanks for looking!  Here is the link on Ravelry for the pattern  http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/pixie-6
