The last couple days were busy with holiday preparations for Rosh Hashanah . The children and I cleaned the house, preparing it for our New Year celebration with my parents.
I started Citron last year, and finished it today in the new year. I like the metaphorical bridge it represents tying one year to the other, bringing the promise of continuity, and at same time new beginnings.
I know this is ascribing a lot of meaning to a little shawl, but to me knitting is magical, kind of like life, a succession of individual knots which after hard work, and a lot of enjoyment become a whole.
The shawl turned out beautifully. I am so fond of its ruffled edge.
I love its simple yet striking geometry.
Thank you Hilary Smith Callis for your wonderful Citron Shawl pattern!
