Black White Gray Citron Shawl


I finished this shawl last week before the company came and went. As you know this is my fifth (?!) citron shawl and I could knit it again.  The pattern is the best kind for talking and being distracted as long as it's not an increase row.  Such a forgiving pattern.


I used Zauberball lace and loved the way it felt while knitting and how it blocked. My only complaint is that there was a break in the gradient colorway and so instead of black to gray to white, the company tied black to white omitting the gray.  I don't think that it matters now that it's knit up.


Today is hot and humid and echoing signs of summer.  I'm holding a winter shawl...Oh the anticipation to wear this when there's a nip in the air.


Ravelry notes are here.

  14. Karen, I just received a skein of lace yarn from Germany. Wollemiese? I know this is considered a very special yarn. How many yards does the Citron take? Would it be a good first lace project?

  16. Gorgeous. I liked knitting the Citron and kind of wished I had used all of the yarn I had for rather than getting tired of knitting it and calling it done. I should have just put it away for a while and then finished it later.

  21. It looks just as beautiful as I thought it would in those colors. You can't really notice the change in color sequence but darn it aggravates me when that happens!

  22. Nice! It's a real shame about the yarn join, I'd be cross about that. The pattern has been in my queue for ages, i really should get around to it!
