FO Friday - 1/6/2012

A friend of mine asked me to make a particular hat for her daughter for Christmas.  We settled on a pretty gray in Berroco Lustra and some scraps of pink yarn that I had around...(Imagine...I have scraps of pink yarn laying around...)



Here's the happy recipient wearing her hat:



Next - Hold onto your hats...grab your smelling salts...

I blocked the Citron shawl yesterday!!!

I know, right?!?

I used every inch (almost) of this yarn that I had.  I've seen Citrons that are teeny tiny.  This one did not turn out huge, by any means, but I think it's a good size for a nice shawlette. 



The yarn is Shaeffer Yarn Company Anne in some colorway that they got at the end of their dyepot and I used my beautiful 4.0mm Signature circulars.  I did an extra repeat of the pattern, except for the last two rows, and then started the ruffle.  I only did eight rows of the ruffle before binding off, and I had about 8 inches of yarn left. 

I got this baby blocked just in time...It is a Christmas gift, and today is the twelfth in the Twelve Days of Christmas...whew!!!

It is now on it's way to the recipient.

MK  out.
