Citron revisited



Love this free Knitty pattern. My second Citron, and probably more will appear as it's a nice and easy travel pattern that uses only one skein of lace or sock yarn. It is knit with larger needles, in this case size US 7, to make it drape well.

I wish I could tell you the yarn I used. I think it may have been Malabrigo Sock, the label's lost so it's just a guess. It's merino I can tell, and very soft.

This is my first shawl/scarf of the year. My plan is to make 12 for 2011 along with 12 adult sweaters too! This may not be as hard as it sounds, you know I'm fast, but also I have officially retired, (which is nicer than quitting, and also I don't plan on looking for work again, ever). I don't really know what is in store for me, but I know that travel, knitting and getting my garden back in shape are tops in my 2011 plan. I'll miss my job lots, but more about that later.

  4. Retirement is lovely - I did it back on 12 Sept 08. It took me a while to find a rhythm to my new life but once you find it, it's wonderful.

    Your Citron is beautiful! I love the colors. Very soft and delicate. I just may have to try this pattern as I have some Premier Yarn in Chili that needs a project. Hmmmm...
