Sunny Citron

I shared this colorful Citron last week, and she has grown tremendously since then. I'm almost finished with section 5, although you can't really tell with all the stitches crammed onto a 24" circular. I really should switch to a larger circular, but it's kind of funny to see all the little laceweight stitches stacked up on a short cable.

I'm still planning on 8 sections plus the ruffle, so 3-ish sections remain. I'm working out the math tonight so I can go into section 6 after work tomorrow without too much difficulty. I find that I always need to let knitting math sit for a day or two after I work it out if I want to knit on with limited errors and less frustration.

This week I started into Diana Gabaldon's The Fiery Cross for a lighter fiction read. Much of my reading time has been going into education related books that requires processing and note-taking. I'm hoping that about two weeks from now I come out of all of this classical education reading and listening with a more fully formed mental picture of classical education from the broad picture that will take us through high school down to the minutae of how individual days might look at different stages. I have a very good idea of what I'm going to adjust right now and try over the summer, but some of it is still coming together in my mind.

Any spinners out there who would like to connect? 
Join us on Fridays for a link up in this space, sharing whatever you have been spinning this week.

  1. Don't you love the miles and miles of knitting of the Citron? I sure do! Love the colors and can't wait to see it all completed.

  2. You seem very logical with your organization of your knitting process! I admire that, as I often just plow through something and hope it works out. I can't wait to see the FO!

  3. One thing about knitting Citron was that you really couldn't see how it looked until it was off the needles - it was always so squished up! The colors are working well for the pattern.

  4. The color is great. I've looked at that shawl several times, but haven't made it yet

  5. I still love that yarn. I'm looking forward to seeing it finished and spread out.
