It's really insane, the amount of personal stash I've got. I'm putting some of it in the shop, including forty some skeins of Koigu. Just keeping enough to make a charlotte's web shawl, which is now in the new Koigu book. I bought the pattern years ago, but thank the knit-gods that some good editor got her hands on it for a rewrite. As talented a designer the author is, I personally have major problems following her pattern writing.
This is sort of a rite of passage--every knitter makes one at some point, right? Mine will use 6 or 7 colors and be about a third bigger than the pattern. I am determined--stating publicly--that this will be completed in five days. Stay tuned. Here's what I did today.
