Well, I finished up Charlotte, and I think she looks lovely. I decided to go with a picot edge instead of the crochet edge suggested by the pattern. I hate to crochet, and didn't want to put fringe on her anyway. I like the effect. I have a lot leftover from the first two red skeins, and some left over from the blue, and green skeins. I've got plans for amulet bags with the leftovers. The lace pattern was really simple once I got used to it. I would suggest writing out the first 20 to 25 rows if you don't like to deal with charts though. I did, and it helped a lot. I also finished spinning up the pink and yellow roving. It's slubby, thick and thin, and very uneven, but I enjoyed spinning it so much! I definitely am going to continue spinning, and I'm sure my yarn will get better looking over time. In other news, I've had a few false starts with Hopeful. I'm hoping that I've picked the correct yarn this time and can get started for real today! I've also recieved the info on my Knitty Secret Pal 5. I'm so excited to get started on it. I thoroughly enjoyed my blogger sp5 experience and hope to have a good experience with this one.
