Patternum Gratis (et honos magnus mihi): Citron Shawl

The new Knitty is up and...wait a sec...that's me!



I feel so, so honored to be a part of Knitty's 30th issue and, honestly, I keep checking the site to make sure I didn't just dream it. (I swear I'm not saying this just because I'm in it but...) This is a particularly fabulous issue of Knitty with some great sweaters and hats. And these Ailbe mittens? I need some right now. Go check it out!

I just have to say thank you- I spent last night searching Ravelry for a pattern for the one beautiful skein of malabrigo lace yarn I bought myself this weekend. Nothing fit the bill and then I found your beautiful pattern in the new knitty! Perfection! I can't wait to cast on...

Yes it is a great issue, but even with all the competition I think Citron is my favorite. I chose yarn for it today and found some KAL friends on Ravelry, and I must start reading your blog as well. I'm your new fan!:)

CanarySanctuary said...

Super incredible congratulations! I really love your design - it's adorable. Something about it makes me feel all cozy, like arriving at a family Christmas party and having the initial "greetings bustle" and sugary deliciousness awaiting my perusal and edification on the table.
Really, it does! It's rav-queued!

Kristin said...

Congratulations, Hilary! You look gorgeous and the scarf is beautiful! I love the color! I also have been meaning to tell you...that I referred a couple of my THS friends (who are knitters) to your blog. Hope you don't mind!! Take care! Merry Christmas!

Suzy Crancer said...

I really may have to knit 1000 of these! I'm on my second one already!

Sprocket said...

FANTASTIC. Like everyone else, I had to cast on right away, using that special yarn I had tucked away. Congratulations, not only are you part of Knitty's 30th but you've skyrocketed up to the top of the Ravelry chart. Rock star!

cricri said...

hello! your citron shawl is really beautiful but i'm french and i don't understand anything in the explanations !!!don't you know where could i find it in french??? thanks a lot !! bye

Hilary said...

Hi Cricri -- Unfortunately, there is no French translation available right now. Someone on Ravelry offered to do it a couple of weeks ago, but I have not heard back from her. I wish I could do it myself, but my French is not very good! I will certainly let you know if a translation becomes available in the future.
