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.
