Barbara, your poncho looks great. I like all the different ways you've thought of wearing it -- i think my favorite is with the stripes across, too. for some reason, i don't think mine came out in quite the same shape. it ended up a little smaller, i think, because i had to make sure I had enough yarn to get to the end -- and I ended up with less than 2 yards left over. Seeing yours makes me at least ponder whether I might try another one.

as to the lys question, at the two yarn stores i stop by most frequently, they don't care if i've purchased the wool somewhere else. I tend not to spend much time sitting and knitting there b/c most of my knitting is done in the evening after store hours, but I have brought in pieces with questions or to ask for advice. my guess is that if it's the kind of place you'd feel comfortable sitting around in and knitting, it's the kind of place that won't mind if you didn't purchase the yarn for that project there, as long as you've purchased yarn or tools there before. there;s probably something small you could buy while you're there, like a cable needle or stitch holders.

i'll have to keep checking your blog to see what we're making in commnon next...
