knitting plans

I’m almost done or at the halfway point with a couple projects, a wrap made out of noro kureyon, and the big bad baby blanket project from Stitch n Bitch. I’ve noticed that I seem to need to have a couple projects going at once, just as I usually like to be reading 2 or 3 books at the same time. So, up next are this shawl, Charlotte’s Web (see, I knit things with literary references!).
Here is the yarn I’m going to use, it calls for 5 different colors of koigu merino:


And I’m also going to knit Salt Peanuts. I fear that the pattern might be a little bit beyond me as a beginning knitter, but I’m going to sit back and pick up some tips from everyone else who is knitting it, and hopefully cast on for it later this summer. I’m going to knit it (eventually) in this Plum Wine color:

That picture turned out blurry, but you get the idea 🙂
