Citron from Knitty WI 09. I needed something with very little stitch detail in order to showcase this lovely hand paint baby alpaca laceweight. Unfortunately, stockinette stitch with tiny yarn for gillions of stitches gets boring. How did I forget?

I recently got my sticky mitts on Folk Shawls by Cheryl Oberle and found the perfect project. The Wool Peddler's Shawl looked like a simple lace I could easily accomplish without too much frogging and frustration, with the added bonus of a historical fun fact I can tell anybody who notices my shawl. During the reign of good old Queen Victoria, wool peddlers would wear to market bright red shawls so they stood out from the crowd and were easily identifiable. Cool.
Thanks Dr. Katie!
