I got yarn in the mail yesterday. Yes, it happens all the time. Any time there’s a package, the kids assume it’s yarn. They’re usually right.
I really wanted to play with this yarn the minute I opened it. So, I got laundry started. Then I looked at the dog. She’d been sick and she really wanted me to sit with her. (That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!) So I printed my pattern, grabbed some needles (No! I didn’t swatch) and started knitting. By the time I went to bed early this morning, here’s what I had.
I knit from about 4 PM until 3 AM. I kept the laundry going. I made Chicken BBQ Pineapple Quesadillas. I watched hours of Nascar! And I knit after everyone went to bed and it was quiet!
The pattern is Citron and it’s a free Knitty pattern!!! And the yarn…so heavenly. I wish you could squeeze it! It’s Twisted Fiber Art Kabam. It’s merino, bamboo, and nylon and it’s so very soft. I had this yarn custom dyed for this pattern. If you look at the Evolution yarn on Meg’s site, it’s got very long color runs and she dyed this skein specifically for Citron.
Look what it’s going to do next!
It’s a strange color combination, but I think I’m going to like it. I saw one shawl on Ravelry that had beads placed during the bind off. I’m considering that! We’ll see where it takes me. I’m on the 4th repeat and there’s one more after this. There’s also a ruffle. That probably means I’m only half done. It’s really brainless knitting though, so maybe today I’ll read a book while I’m at it.
