Well, I finished the Citron. I was supposed to post about it weeks ago, but life got in the way of things. No matter, because the main thing is, it is done! The pictures are terrible, and I do apologize. I have been ill, with a cold that manifested into something altogether more sinister, though I am well on the way to being back to normal now.
My kids did a fine job taking the pictures, I just look rather rubbish in them. I had the girls take the pictures to send to my Mom, as it is her shawl after all, and I was planning on retaking better ones for this post. But really, I can't be bothered, they are good enough. It is ok, though, as you won't be looking at me, but at the shawl!
Yarn: Artesano 100% Alpaca 4Ply, Forget Me Not
I'll tell you what, I am glad this project is done. I've admired all you ladies out there making shawl after shawl for a while now, but I found it really hard work. I did 9 repeats and by the end I was bored, and it seemed to take ages with all those stitches on the needle. Saying all that though, I like it a lot, and I think it is very pretty. I think the blue will be lovely with my Mom's eyes. I think the yarn is lovely, and I would definitely use it again. So while I am in no hurry to make another shawl, at least now I can say I have made one, and I am happy with the results.
