I finished knitting Charlotte's Web IV last night. I still need to do the crocheted edge and the blocking/fringing, but that's the easier part. I took advantage of the lovely morning sun to snap some photos. I'm convinced Koigu is some kind of stealth covert yarn--it refuses to photograph well. But this one is pretty good:
The bottom colour isn't that dark and there are some nifty subtle pink variations in the hot-pink section in the middle. I only have a few metres of the last two colours and very little of the hot-pink so the edging will be very pink. I'm not sure how that will look, so this one may not have fringe. Or I can see if Four Seasons Knitting has another ball of one of the orangey colours. The owner, Jo-Ann, was the genius who came up with this fabulous colour combination.
My Aunt Charlotte's birthday is May 4th so I need to get going. I did think of doing a beaded edge, but since I've never knit/crocheted with beads, the learning curve might be a tad steep on that. Maybe on my next lace piece.
