It's not a fancy Frency way to say "citron".
It's not the older brother of Voltron.
It's not an acne-ridden movie Tron.
It's not the mortal enemy of Megatron.
It's my new love.
Saturday afternoon* at Mass Ave Knit Shop, I fell in love with this skein of Zitron Turmalin.
Wendy gave me an idea for a project and found some wicked awesome buttons.
That afternoon we took some pictures at Wendy's mom's house, and I wound it up into a ball.
That night I made a collar using the "my so called scarf" stitch pattern.
Then, I put it on, and was instantly fabulous. It goes great with both my brown and black coats, and has kept me roasty toasty the last couple of days with the loverly snow we've been having.
I'll show you the other stuff I got soon. This was hands down my favorite.
*I loved this skein so much, I could barely stand to wind it and knit it up. So Sunday afternoon we went back to MAKS and I bought a second skein. I'm not going to knit the second one. I'm just going to look at it. And love it and pet it and call it George. (Didn't hurt that both skeins were 40% off. Woo!)
**I knit it the first time casting on 30 stitches, and it was too short and way wide. So, I ripped it out and cast on 26 stitches, and it turned out perfectly. Woo!
