I'm currently knitting the bottom edging of the Karis poncho. The bottom edging makes the same pointed edge, and has the same little flower in the center, as the collar edging has -- only difference being that the bottom edging is knitted on as you go, and also includes a row of faggoting. And, of course, since the poncho flares, there is a lot more of the bottom edging to knit!

The bottom edging will have 50 points in its edge when completed. So far, I've knitted 10 of these points. We fly home tomorrow, and I predict that this project will once again be my airplane knitting (much as I would like to finish it today and wear it to dinner tonight!).

Awwwwwwww...... But such progress!
Did you pack An Alternate Wrap, or did you decide to Live Dangerously?

Kit, you know that I am a belt-and-suspenders kind of gal, so no Living Dangerously here. I bought an Alternate Outfit, which is a black sequined top and some dressy black pants, to wear to the Gala Dinner. It ain't the same as a lacy poncho over a bare-shouldered cocktail dress, but I'll manage to get through the evening.

I *am* pleased with the amount of knitting I've accomplished on this project.
