Did I mention I started Citron? I thought I mentioned it. I was looking for travel knitting and I thought…Citron. And I had this lovely Schaefer Nichole in Mary Walker Phillips and I figured it would all work out. I cast on just enough to get me started and then off we went to Philly….with Citron. And I hated her. Here I had a cute pattern and a lovely yarn and together they were sooo very bad. Don't believe me, do ya? Well look:
Ugh. Double Ugh. And what a waste of time, good pattern and lovely yarn. No, it would not do.
Luckily my friend Rachael *twisted my arm* into popping into Loop in Philly and picking up the greatest thing ever – a Zauberball!! Somehow I missed the Zauberball. I don't know how or when, but it escaped me totally. It might have a lot to do with the fact that I do NOT knit socks. Never ever. Ever. But look at the prettiness:
And doesn't this look sooooo much better for Citron? I mean really, really better? Its a Schoppel Wolle Crazy Zauberball and I want to keep a big bowl of them on my coffee table. Well, I did get a few odd looks, so it may not be to your tastes but I love it!
Just wait until it's finished! I've got one more quick trip next weekend and I hope to finish it up then – YAY!
