|Happy birthday Tera! I hope you don't mind that I tried on your gift for a post photo!|
I almost didn't write an FO post for this one because it's exactly the same as my first Citron.
But then this arrived in the mail:
These eight skeins of Malabrigo Twist must have been mailed quite promptly after I placed an order with Happy Knits a few days ago.
Over the holidays, Tera admired my Citron, so I offered to make her one exactly like it with the 2nd half of my Claudia Silk Lace.
Also over the holidays, my mother-in-law fell in love with my Emily sweater, and it even fit her perfectly, so I offered to knit another one up for her. I just thought it was funny that the first repeat knit was placed in the mail at the exact moment in which I received the yarn for the next repeat knit. It's a good thing that I like to knit!
So I thought I would pop on over to join the FO Friday list after all and share my Citron love. Despite the huge numbers of FOs on Ravelry, I haven't really seen photos that do it justice. So, if you are not one of the 6160 people who have knit a Citron already, and you were sitting on the fence about this one, I encourage you to try it. It's a pretty easy knit with beautiful results.
