I haven't worked on something so addicting in a long time. Charlotte's Web is one habit forming knit. It is so much easier the second time around. I made a mistake at Row 43, ripped back 6 rows and went merrily on my way. This one is taking less time partly due to familiarity and also the fact that I'm using one colourway. Koigu P113 has so many brilliant colours, magenta, greens - olives to bright lime, purples, blues and little turquoise; it's beautiful on its own. Knitting merrily away this weekend, cockily adding an additional 32 rows, you can predict what happened. Picture this: row 172, 347 stitches across, 42 stitch markers, a very tired Li, how the heck did I get to the 48th stitch without realizing I was knitting in the wrong direction? A deep breath later, the S1, K2's, SSP's were carefully undone and I'm into the home stretch - 15 rows to go! I'm starting to think of the finishing, maybe a ruffled edge this time instead of fringe, like on my Yarn Harlot poncho. Hoping my next photos are of a blocking Charlotte, but you never know what might happen! As my ninth grade math teacher used to say, "The road to hell is paved with good intentions."
The colours in the photo look quite accurate. See you on Friday.
