Last summer, when we vacationed in gorgeous Nova Scotia, I visited a local yarn shop, met the lovely owner, and purchased this beautiful yarn as part of a kit. I tried desperately to knit the shawl for which this yarn was intended but, no can do.
After several failed attempts and more than a bit of frustration, I decided to look for a new pattern, and I found this shawlette on Ravelry. The name is Citron, designed by Hillary Smith Callis, and it’s available free to Ravelry members. Since the yarn was a lace weight and I was using #4 circular needles, it was definitely tedious at times. It measures 34″ from end-to-end, and the height at the center is 14″. I am thrilled with the results, but I am oh SO glad to have this project behind me.
I look forward to wearing it around my shoulders when that winter chill comes to call but, after last winter, I refuse to even think about a cool breeze……much less a winter chill. So, I will wrap this little shawl neatly, place it in a small box, and shove it in the back of a closet……..way back…….and I won’t give it another thought…..until……….
Let the sun shine!
