Although it might seem at this time of year that everyone is focussing on sweaters, it’s always going to get to the point where your (or my) knitting bag gets a little big to carry around. I still always have a shawl on my needles and next up is Marin – one of my favourites. I’ve made this a couple of times but am yet to have one to call my own, so it’s time to fix that. I had a look through some projects for some colour ideas and as always there was a lot of inspiration!
I absolutely love this earthy green of Strikbibliotekar‘s version.
I feel a green phase starting in my knitting! I couldn’t stop looking at this gorgeous version by oharethey.
This rich teal Marin by arcjgw has such a lovely sheen, and sits so beautifully it reminds me why the ones I make keep getting stolen (ahem, I mean, gifted…)
Such a delicate version by MissLC…
And finally, SaraHenningson‘s lovely Marin, and such a great yarn choice to show off that squishy garter stitch but still give definition to the edging. Wonderful!
