did you hear?

When Martha Stewart was released from prison this week, she came out wearing a poncho. Apparently, there has been such enormous interest this poncho that Lion Brand is putting out a copycat pattern.

Personally, I think the poncho borders on hideous. Sure, it's great that it was a gift to Martha from a friend. But what really gets me is that it's not all that complex a garment, and the most novice of crocheters should be able to pick up a hook and yarn and create something similar without breaking too much of a sweat.

This is why I am proud and thrilled to say that not one person has contacted Crochet me requesting the pattern. Apparently, Crochet me readers either agree with me that the poncho is no great shakes, or they at least feel empowered enough to embark without a pattern.
