I've been knitting like a maniac during the Olympics, and making good use of all that TV viewing and sofa time! Here's what I have to show for it: a Citron shawl.
Citron is a free pattern on the Knitty.com web site. It was perfect TV knitting - lots of mindless stocking stitch. The instructions are written for 5 repeats of the main pattern, with some extra guidelines for making it bigger, if so desired.
I checked ravelry, and saw a bunch of folks had recommended 7 repeats. I really like the size that the recommended 7 repeats produced. The only other change I made was to go down a needle size to a US 5, which worked well for this lovely fine yarn.
And what is this lovely yarn you may ask. It is a merino wool/silk mix lace yarn from Phydeaux Designs. Isn't it beautiful. Colorway is Alpha Centauri. I think I may become a frequent shopper at this online store!
Hope you are having a good week and enjoying the Olympic Games,
