As promised, knitting!

That, my friends, is a nearly finished Citron, knit from Mista Alpaca fingering weight. It is a bit scrunched up; know that when it is properly blocked it will appear less blotchy. (I hope.) I have knitted 2 of the 11 rows of the final ruffle. Each of those rows is >500 st.

And this is how much yarn I have left.

That ball is about the size of a golf ball. It will not be enough. The final ruffle, she will be… narrower than called for in the pattern. And the bind off may be a solid color. But it will be done. It is a gift, and when it has been finished and blocked and presented to the recipient, I can knit something for memeME!

    Love it! Very nice. This is the very same yarn I used in my Ulmus shawl. Such lovely yarn — and so soft!

    Really makes you wish for clairvoyance, eh?

    Strangely, the color blops seem to work on that shawl. 🙂

    It’s always good to be nearly finished. So what are you going to knit for you??
