Can't get enough of the poncho

After much discussion with others regarding the pesky poncho, I was told by numerous people that the slits are to be used as muffs for the hands. The arms do not go through the slits from underneath but the hands go into the slits from the outside. I was starting to think that my sister had been wrong and, if my sister was wrong about this, my whole world view would be shaken. Friday afternoon, I called and left her a message asking her to call me because I needed to speak to her urgently regarding the matter of ponchos. She called me late Friday evening and we went over the poncho again. She was shocked and dismayed to hear that I had misunderstood our conversation about the poncho slits and was horrified that I had blogged about it and that now all 3 of my readers thought she didn't know squat about ponchos. She was horrified and demanded that I clear her name as soon as possible. So, I'm clearing her name...

My sister NEVER thought that the arms were to go through the slits from underneath the poncho. My sister ALWAYS knew that the slits were to be used for the hands.
Luisa would also like her name cleared because she "knew the arms weren't supposed to go through the slits" but I am not clearing her name because she still said that the slits were pockets and they are not pockets 'cause you can't put anything in them other than hands. I will give her partial credit, however, and her prize is that she gets to apply the poncho to the Small one who Squirms whenever said poncho is needed. As for me, well, I'm so poncho impaired that I should never be allowed near one again.

Well, I am certainly happy that you cleared your sister's girly reputation.

I would like to say that English is not my first language and so when I said 'pockets' I meant that the hands would go in from the outside to stay warm as opposed to sleeves (which is how Vikki interpreted the slits) - so I believe my reputation should also be cleared :-)

I didn't know ponchos had slits.
