Sunday morning, I had nothing to work on knitting-wise. I had pushed myself to finish the monster for Dylan and had started another mini-version that I wasn’t exactly loving. I went through my stash and decided it was about time that I use the skein of Neighborhood Fiber Company Studio Sock I’d picked up weeks ago and hadn’t gotten around to using yet. Well, I had started a Traveling Woman shawl but it wasn’t working “right” to me. Finally decided to copy the pack of gals who were at Fibre Space Thursday night and make a sock yarn-weight Citron.
This Citron is going so, so much faster than the first. The earlier Citron was my first foray into laceweight yarn and bored me to tears. This one had no laceweight challenges and I’m really quite good at making consistent Make 1′s at this point. I’m a bit closer to the end of the ball than I had expected, having just completed the fourth repeat, so I decided to go straight to the ruffle. Danielle requested mini socks out of the sock yarns her shop carries, anyway, so the leftovers (likely very small) will be put to good use.
As per usual, I have no idea who the final recipient of this is going to be. I’m going to try to keep it for myself but suspect I’ll be just as allergic to this yarn as I was to the Miss Babs. Can knit with it, no problem but put it on my neck and I begin to itch immediately. Whether I keep it for myself or give it away, it is going to be gorgeous when complete.
