Late, once again

August 4, 2008

Late to the Charlotte’s Web party using Socks that Rock, me and another Raveler are having what we term the Charlotte’s Web STR Knit-along version 2.0. After seeing turtlegirl76’s amazing shawl, I jumped right in to planning what mine would look like.

Using 2 skeins of Socks that Rock lightweight from my stash, I ordered 3 more skeins in Blue Moon Fiber Arts to complete the set of 5 colorways called for.

The line-up for Charlotte's Web

Using the line-up of Ms LaRock, Nodding Violet, Lapis, Mr. Green Jeans, and Ravenscroft I am anxiously awaiting the delivery of my pattern. I’m really looking forward to making this shawl, and hope that I can finish it in fairly quick amount of time. The colors will be so lovely this winter when Philadelphia becomes awash in the usual gray.

    I’m going to start this very soon too! I have my Koigu mill ends just ready to get lined up šŸ™‚ I hope your pattern arrives soon.

    Funny to see a resurgence of this shawl – when I came into blogland 4 years ago, this was THE knit – everyone was making it with Koigu. I was a brand new knitter, and just looking at it scared me. I love to see things come back around, especially with innovative changes like using STR. Yours is going to be stunning. Can’t wait to see it come together!
