Citron Grows

My Citron is growing, albeit a bit slowly. The main reason for that is that Farmer's Market is open again and I have been cooking a bunch of very yummy food. Before I get into that, I give you the Citron:

It's like a rainbow wedge of citrus. I think this pattern is aptly named!

When not knitting, I have been cooking. This weekend, I made this:

I call this 3 P chowder. It's Pea, Potato, and Parrotfish.

If you've never had parrotfish before, it's super yummy and holds up to making chowder extremely well!

Up next, more Citron!

The State of the Knitting

Well, this week has been a slow week for knitting. Let me give you the reasons why:

1. Farmer's Market opened on Saturday. I had been looking forward to this for months and planning out what I would get depending on how good the growing season was. I bought greens, green beans, cheese, jam, and herb seedling this past week. Who knows what this Saturday will bring!

2. We're in training again at work, and two people have been out for the past week on top of that, so once again, I've been pulling 50 hour weeks. Hopefully this week will not be a 50 hour week, but who knows.

3. Because of number 2, I have crashed as soon as I get home, watched Iron Chef and Cupcake Wars, and then died for the night.

4. My family keeps bringing me furniture. So if I'm not already dead when I get home, I am after moving around stuff.

Ok, enough of me making excuses. I did get to work on the shawl some this weekend, just not enough to document in pictures. Hopefully I'll get some done here soon and can get some pictures up here for you by the weekend.

I mentioned that since knitting was chosen as the next project by the voters, I thought I would finish my Citron up.

I haven't finished it yet, but I have finally taken a very bad picture of the knitted item and can at least show you the color scheme of the knit. So without further ado, here is the Citron in progress. I'm on section 4 right now:
The yarn is Crazy Zauberball in what I'm calling the Tropics colorway. Not sure which colorway it actually is since the label is now long gone, but I like it a lot.

That's it for today. Hopefully more progress here soon.

And The Winner Is...

According to all 7 of you who voted (which, seriously, I'm so thrilled I even have seven people who read this blog anymore that you guys just made my day!), it looks like my next project is going to be a knitting one.

I'll figure out what I'm going to start working on in the next day or so, but in the meantime, the latest issue of Fiber Fiction is now live. Here is the pattern for OtherKin part two:This is a reversible cabled dishcloth that is good and smooshy for scrubbing. You can read the story here and also find the pattern.
