  • Parallel projects and posts 21 min apart. I’m almost afraid to comment for fear of getting sucked into the vortex.
    I am going to go….ohhhhh….I’m falling in….

  • I am looking at a ziplockful of a deep greeny-blue Jade Sapphire Mongolian cashmere RIGHT NOW! I feel one step – and many fuzzy yards – away from yarny fame 🙂

  • Must. Go. to Brooklyn General. And buy cashmere.
    MUST GO NOW.
    preeeeeeeeeeeeeeeety.

  • Cashmere is amazing stuff! Last year a librarian in a hushed voice told me she had some and clandestinely pulled a bit of it out of her purse to show me. I was hooked.

  • i darn near got run over
    i am enjoying the games
    knitting is very nice
    hooray for the winners
    i think i will let my berroco comfort me

  • So glad to know that I’m not the only one who didn’t have a “thing” for Jackson Browne way back when.

  • Jacksonnnnn Brownnnnnne. I think it was that e at the end that did it. It was just that extra, little, extraness.
    I did not know your Citron was gray, too. That’s what’s creeping me out. [goes off to find voodoo amulet]

  • Grey Garments inspired me (or was it guilt?) to organize my stash. Lo and behold . . . two skeins of Malabrigo Lace! In stock! Almost like free! Color Cypress! Let the Citron vortex gain momentum like Johnny Weir’s sit spins.

  • would that, could that, by any chance be a little quilt-let beneath your “citron?”

  • It’s the spotty bedding! Hurrah! Anyway, love your knits. Do I need one of these ‘citron’ jobbies? I have almost finished the Easter Egg colours Giant Granny Square, so am allowed to think about such things. Or should I do that cowl jobby (sadly in unspecified cashmere, rather than Jade Sapphire). Do I have enough, one wonders idly…

  • Well, Al Pacino would have it all over Jackson Browne, if only he could sing–just saying. 🙂
    I agree, Kay, with your view of “shawlettes” (sounds like a ’60’s girl group). However, I wish to make a prayer shawl for a very petite friend of mine, and Citron seems perfect, even if it is only one skein…
    The question is, do I have a “prayer” of finding the Malabrigo lace in a shade of oatmeal?
    Running on, running on empty…
    LoveDiane

  • Last night I watched the news from Washington, the capitol
    The Russians escaped while we weren’t watching them, like Russians will
    Now we’ve got all this room, we’ve even got the moon
    And I hear the U.S.S.R. will be open soon
    As vacation land for lawyers in love
    Ok not a Jackson “thinks he’s Thomas Hardy of our time” Browne fan either here. No. Not a bit.
    And my head’s spinning from the same project time warp occuring over NYC and Nashville. Must be some left over effect of too much snow in one season.

  • Y’all are scaring me with the identical grey shawl like objects. I think I need to cast on a mitered square for balance.

  • Citron has been on my must make list since it came out. Yours are pretty and are pushing me over the edge…
    Of course, the edge is pretty far away. Most items I must make sit on my queue for about a year before I get to them!

  • Of COURSE you’re knitting the same things … you ARE the ladies in Grey Garments growing old together in the same room aren’t you? … The power of suggestion ….

  • Love both projects. I think I may even have that Martha Stewart magazine still (with the little neck thing). Both projects would make great gifts for next Christmas.

  • For Ladies of a Certain Age:
    It’s the 1970’s, and Jackson Browne.
    I can say no more.

  • So tempted by Citron. Stopped by the words in the pattern: “540 stitches.)

  • This cute little neck number is identical to 3 – count ’em, 3 – that my husband’s favorite aunt made for me in 1982, after I had neck surgery in January. I guess whe thought my scar would heal better if it was warm! What a great little nostalgia trip.

  • I’ve looked at this page more than once, and just now realized that you weren’t talking about *James* Brown. I have only a very dim idea of who Jackson Browne is and now must go look him up.

  • Miss Marple was wearing a bow scarf almost like your pattern in Agatha Christie’s Marple: Ordeal by Innocence I just rewatched on tv last week!

  • You girls have gotten me hooked on that little Martha Stewart scarf…I’ve made two over the past week! Sadly, I didn’t have cashmere…just plain ol’ wool…but they turned out cute, all the same!
    …movin’ on to other knittin’ stuff now!
