Better Blob

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.

Very, very nice colors.

It looks great! I'm sure you'll have it done easily by the 4th. :)

Gorgeous! I can't wait to start my first lace project (not sure what it will be, a scarf of some kind).

Beautiful Charlotte. Love the colors too.

Very cool shawl. I also agree with you on Four Seasons Knitting-such a nice lady to deal with, and excellent service!

Absolutely fantastic colors!

The colors are so beautiful! Like a sunset!

That is truly lovely. I'm looking forward to seeing it all blocked out!

I agree, beautiful colors!! Good luck with the finishing and to finish on time..May 4th is coming up fast!

Sunset colors. My favorites!

I thought the same way about knitting with beads until I tried it:-) It is the same as knitting without beads. Try it you will love it!!
