Knitting with Noro is like going on a treasure hunt, even with grays and browns it's like magic to see the beautiful colors develop. But the best part of the treasure hunt is the different manner of schmutz to discover while knitting. In just one skein, there was of course your everyday pokey-outey straw bits. But I also found a seed (no I did not plant this seed in fear it would be a kudzu type weed ready to overpower my dear little flowers), an actual thorn and the best score of all, a darling little yellow burr ball, a kind of Seussical find where a tiny Whoville might live.
I used 1 skein of Noro Kureyon Sock, color #149. It is scratchy to handle and makes a burlap type fabric, but after a good bath it does soften. However, I cannot imagine wearing socks made from this, too itchy, but they would be pretty.
Citron is such a fun pattern and practically knits itself. It's free here from Knitty and hugely popular on Ravelry, I've seen people make a few of these. It's a good traveler and easy knitting for waiting rooms, church services, car rides, etc. as it takes minimal brain cells to power through. I stuffed it in my purse almost every time I left the house. I already purchased a skein of Zephyr Laceweight for my next one!
Side note: It is important to wet block Citron.
If you haven't made your Citron yet, don't delay! You'll love it!
