Spring may not exactly be in the air just yet but that doesn’t stop my thoughts from turning to a little knitted number that promises more sunny, warm days ahead. Just look at Citron, the latest “it” girl from Knitty.
For me, this versatile slice of citrus goodness strikes just the right balance between sweet (ruffles) and sophisticated (ruching). I could also see making at least two versions, with one for winter in wool that would double as a scarf and a larger shawl for summer in light fingering weight bamboo or cotton blend.
First things first though. I’ve got to actually knit one before I can even consider making some sort of winter / summer shawl wardrobe. I can’t even decide on the yarn at this point which is where you lovely people come it. I’ve narrowed it down to three contenders which was a chore in itself. Each is wool or a wool blend making it appropriate for the in between that is still Winter and not quite Spring.
It’s come down to the sunshine yellow of Butter Peeps lace weight from Dream In Color (A), All Things Heather’s deep, subtly pink Raspberry sock yarn (B), or Zen String’s Bambewe merino / bamboo / nylon mix (C) . Just when I think I know which one I want, I change my mind so please, help a knitter out. Leave me a comment saying which one you would choose.
Thanks. I might even arrange for a little something to land in the mailbox of the person belonging to a randomly chosen comment. See? Now you have some skin in the game too.
