That, my friends, is a nearly finished Citron, knit from Mista Alpaca fingering weight. It is a bit scrunched up; know that when it is properly blocked it will appear less blotchy. (I hope.) I have knitted 2 of the 11 rows of the final ruffle. Each of those rows is >500 st.
And this is how much yarn I have left.
That ball is about the size of a golf ball. It will not be enough. The final ruffle, she will be... narrower than called for in the pattern. And the bind off may be a solid color. But it will be done. It is a gift, and when it has been finished and blocked and presented to the recipient, I can knit something for memeME!
