Citron One-skein Shawlette

This pattern is available at Knitty.com for free and can be found here. I’d picked up one skein of Malabrigo Lace (470 yards, 100% merino and oh-so-soft!) on sale at Tradewinds in Dartmouth, NS. It was the last day that her store was open so what was left was heavily marked down. The pattern says that one skein will suit it, but I only had enough to get to the outer edge of the 5th section of rushing, still, though, it is a wearable size.

I finished this scarf on Saturday, which was Wold-wide Knit in Public Day. That was an interesting time. I sat down to knit with a couple of women who were in town for a Red Hat Society convention. Missy joined us, and soon enough Mayor Ivan Court stopped by and told us a few stories. As the Red Hat ladies left to go to their luncheon, Elizabeth came along with her daughter and aunt (and Buffy, the aunt’s chihuahua, happily clad in pinks and nested in a pink travel bag.)
