There's going to be a Charlotte!

My Charlotte's Web shawl is growing and not causing me any grief at all. If I had it to do over, I would probably not have picked some of the colorways in it, but I still think I'll like it.



When I first purchased the yarn for the shawl, the store I went to had a very limited stock and I was just too eager to get going on it to want to order the yarn. I did not like it at all from the beginning. The yarn was pretty but not exactly what I wanted. The whole project came to a halt shortly after and I just decided to wait until I could find a few more colorways to add to it.


When I went to Stitch n Pitch, I did buy a two more colorways. Then I got the chance to visit Village Yarn and Tea in Shoreline and I found another. I had to stop myself because I really could have purchased enough yarn to make another shawl completely and my budget just couldn't take it.


While on vacation, I just decided to put the colors together and go for it. I'm now halfway through the 4th colorway. I know if I stop now, I'll forget the pattern that is just flowing so easily. I'm excited because I just LOVE the last color coming up. I'm hoping it pulls the rest of it together but I'm not really unhappy with the way it all looks.

When I get this one done, I'm going to have to go back to the "have to" knitting. Hmmmm, I wonder how long I can make this last!

Sometimes you just have to trust that it will all come together in the end - the most beautiful things are often unforeseeable! The riot of colours makes me dizzy. I love it!!!
