Charlotte's Web is finally "really" on my radar. I've been sort of addicted since I first started blogging and saw so many people working on it - and saw so many wonderful combinations posted on Rob's BlackDog site. But, I kept putting it off - partly because I couldn't decide on colors. Partly because I know it's not 100% practical while the baby is so little.
But then I showed it to my mom. She, like me, has never been a shawl person. However, she, like me, is a color person. She loved it. She wants it. She doesn't want to make it though. She wants me to do that. So, while part of me thinks it might get even less use in her house, it's on my agenda as a possible holiday gift add-on. So, we did some color looking so that I could get a sense of what she was liking. I didn't expect it, but it turned out she liked many of the same color combos I liked. Pretty funny.
So, I'm going to be picking up yarn for that soon and getting it started. In the meantime, I'm going to be scouring the blogs for tips and trips. It will be my first lace project.
