Charlotte's Web Shawl


She's done...almost! It seems like it took forever and especially those last few rows. It still needs to be blocked, but I'm not sure when I'll get a chance to do that. I was originally planning to do that this coming weekend on the bed, but my husband is working night shift, so the bed will be occupied during the day.

Yarn is Socks That Rock mediumweight. Colors from top to bottom are Saratoga, Henpecked, Rooster Rock, Kaw Kaw, and Eggplanted. Because it turned out so large, I decided on just a simple single crochet border in the final color.

I did make a few modifications. The original pattern calls for 2 pattern repeats in color 1, then 2 repeats blending colors 1 and 2, then 2 repeats of color 2, etc. I did 4 repeats of colors 1, 2 and 3; 3 repeats of colors 4 and 5; and 2 repeats for the blending sections. And my border is much more simple than the original pattern (oh, and no fringe).

Now that this project is done, I can go back to focusing on my small projects (Hurray for socks!!).
