That's right, je suis à Paris! You see, I made the Citron specifically FOR this trip, and I must say, it's been perfect to have with me. I made mine one repeat longer than the pattern, because I usually wear it more like a shawl - with a t-shirt or tank. For the past two days, however, it has been wrapped around my neck like a scarf. I'm so glad I used the Manos Serena. I thought it might be too warm, but it's perfect.
And so far, it's been FREEZING here in Paris. Thankfully, I had some Jacoby Gauntlets with me. At the top of the Eiffel Tower, it was probably in the mid 40's with that big wind chill this morning. That Malabrigo Sock Yarn sure felt good on my hands, which were absolute icicles. It's supposed to be warming up a bit tomorrow thankfully. Who would've thought I needed so many handknits on a June trip to France?
We're having a great time, fitting a lot in and seeing some incredible stuff. We were just a TAD jetlagged yesterday so I grabbed a few minutes of shut-eye while cruising down the Seine. (Don't worry, I didn't miss anything important!) And we've been working the metro like pros. It's so much fun!
And trip knitting? I have just one project with me. Yep, another Citron. It is THE most versatile scarf/shawl I have ever had. This one is in madelinetosh Tosh Sock, in the color Tart. It's for my sister who lives over here. We're flying down south to meet her on Tuesday. I'm not sure I will finish it on the trip - but I sure will try!?
