One of 10 in 2010

I signed up for the 10 shawls in 2010 challenge on Ravelry. Probably crazy because I'm not the speediest knitter around. While others have already finished three or four.....I just finished my first. And it was an easy one. I have to remind myself that "slow and steady wins the race."

My first of the year is the ubiquitous Citron (there are 1408 Citron projects on Ravelry right now). Mine is a butter yellow in Malabrigo lace weight yarn. Very soft. Very dainty. And very, very petite. I haven't quite figured out what I'm going to do with it. Maybe I'll put it my "gift closet." Ha ha -- that's shopping channel speak -- they always try to get you to buy something and put it away for future gifting. Does anyone really do that? Whenever I do, I forget about it. I wouldn't want to forget about something that took me about a month to make!
