Fo: Charlotte's Web

I knit a Charlotte's Web shawl as my first project. It turned out all right but it wasn't perfect so I wanted to make another one, applying the things I'd learned.

I had hoped to have it done to wear on Christmas Eve but despite waking up early and knitting all day and I didn't finish in time to have it blocked and dry.

Here's a blocking shot

The prerequisite fence shot

I'll post a photo of me wearing it this evening.


I used a US 7 this time around to make the lace pattern looser. I also used 6 colours instead of 5 and did an extra 12 rows.

I'm not a fan of fringe so I tried a picot bind off. It took forever but I love the effect.

I'm just loving this piece.
