I just couldn't make up my mind...

... so I cast on for both a pair of socks AND Citron.

I'm not going to show you the socks because I think I'm going to frog them and try a different pattern, but Citron is coming along nicely:I've got the first two sections done, and If I do a section a night I could have it done by the weekend. That said, each section takes a little longer to do, so it might not happen. And... I have two skeins of Skinny Bugga (which I am alternating because one has no gold at all) so I'm planing on adding a few sections. So the chances of me finishing it up by the weekend have just fallen dramatically.

The Skinny Bugga is lovely to work with and Mom just ordered three more skeins in Oak Timberworm for me. So much for not adding to the stash....

But it's such a pretty addition to the stash!

I think it gives it something extra to have the alternating gold, or at least from what you can see so far.

That Oak Timberworm is pretty! Can't wait to see what you do with it.

We should all have mothers who facilitate our stash problems. That would just make the world a better place.

Oh, you are using lovely green for Citron! It's looking good so far!

The shawl looks very pretty ... but take your time to enjoy it and the weather!

The way you're knitting, it won't be in the stash for long! Besides, that kind of stash enhancement is a good thing :) I'm loving the way your Citron is turning out -- those colors are perfect for it.
