Pattern- Citron from Knitty
Needle- size 6 KnitPicks Options
Yarn-Malabrigo Lace in Azul Bolita
Started- February 12, 2010
Finished- February 26, 2010
Adjustments to pattern: I left off the last two rows of the ruffle because I was afraid I was going to run out of yarn.
I also realized today that when it came to blogging this month, I seriously failed. It is amazing how a month can go by so quickly. I will admit that this month has been eventful to say the least. Tomorrow begins a new month so maybe it will go better.

It has been crazy busy around here. I have been knitting but all my projects seem to have been slow going. Technically, I haven't finished anything all year. The knitting of the sweater for the Punkinbug was actually finished in December. I have joined the Ten Shawls in 2010. I have been plugging away on the first one. I am on the second chart of three. I have become more proficient in fixing lace knitting mistakes on this one which I am happy about.
Friday night was the beginning of the Olympics, therefore I needed some Knitting Olympics knitting. I started the Citron shawl from Knitty. I am using some Malabrigo Lace in Azul Bolita. This yarn is so yummy and soft. I am already trying to think of other projects I can use this yarn for. This shawl is going pretty quick but I still have the longest rows to go.
A week ago Friday, I had planned to take the kids to movie night at school so I needed knitting that I could work on during a movie. We didn't go for some reason but I still had a sock started. I am making the Burning Rings of Fire socks in some Zen Yarn Garden. This sock has saved my nerves some in the the last week or so. The colors are a little washed out in this photo but I will get better pictures when the socks are done.
