Cashmere Citron Scarf

Behold the beautiful Citron, designed by Hillary Smith Callis.  This looks so much better on the dressmaker’s dummy than it does on me that here’s where it lives for right now.  Right there.  Oooh, aahh.

I love those beautiful bands of simple ruching.  So clever, so perfect.

This yarn is 100% cashmere (I know, right?) by Jojoland in an ethereal color very poetically named “C255”.  (Why do yarn companies do that?  Don’t they know how persuaded people are by the awesome color names of things?)  Well, it’s light blue.  I doubt that’s any more interesting than “C255”,  come to think of it.  Let’s do the fun work for the designers at Jojoland and rename color C255.  How about “Summer Saturday”?  “Newman’s Iris?”  I can’t think of any others…

This scarf is so beautiful, in every way, and the yarn is softer than baby bunnies.  It’s the little things, isn’t it?
