Citrusy - oh wait, it's Citron.  Citron is a cute little shawlette from Knitty a few issues back.  It's just a tiny little shawl that fits around your neck and lies perfectly, thanks to its semi-circular shape.  Mary has done several and thought it would be a fun project for the Thursday afternoon scarf club.

It's a very simple project worked with a light weight yarn on size 6 needles.  It's a great excuse to use one of our fab new yarns - you might try Prism Saki, Dream in Color Starry, or Juniper Moon Findley - it only takes one skein!.  For a very soft and floaty Citron, try Rowan Kid Silk Haze or new Silk Mohair from Artyarns in spectacular subtle hand-dyed shades.  If you're feeling especially decadent, you can indulge yourself in a skein of Artyarns new laceweight cashmere - 500+ yards of delicious cashmere in gorgeous tonal shades.  Think how nice it will feel around your neck and how luscious it will be to work with pure cashmere...

Join us Thursday afternoons for the next few weeks and knit up a Citron of your own.  It's a great gift too - if you can bear to part with it.  Thursday afternoons at 1:30 - both shops.
