Charlotte's Web Photoshoot

Coleen and I had a date in the park today to shoot some photos of our finished shawls.

I'm glad the rain held off - we were able to get some great shots!

May I present my Charlotte's Web shawl!

Charlotte's Web

Stats
Pattern: Charlotte's Web from Knits from a Painter's Palette: Modular Masterpieces in Handpainted Yarns by Maie Landra
Yarn: 5 different skeins of Koigu Painter's Palette Premium Merino
Needles: Addi Turbo Size US 9
Mods: I had to remove the last 4 rows of the pattern in my last color because I was out of yarn! I also added the crochet edging with the first color in my shawl.

Charlotte's Web

I really enjoyed knitting this. The yarn was so squishy and soft and the pattern is really easy to memorize once you get the hang of it. It flew off my needles!

Here are some more pics...
