Marin

This Marin was made by Mary T as a birthday present for someone.  She lent it to me until the birthday!

Marin, by Ysolda Teague, is a great pattern.

Firstly, it  was made with just 1 skein of Artesano Definition sockyarn.

Secondly, it is reversible.

Finally, it is beautiful and I think I will be making one soon.

Stainless Steel Scarf

Bubble Scarf

I had been wanting for ages to knit with yarn that had some stainless steel in it and I love the result.

I used 25g of Katia Inox Lace and 4mm needles.  Next time I’ll use 5mm to get a more gauzy effect.  This yarn is 8% stainless steel and the rest is Extrafine Merino.  This laceweight is a joy to knit with.

The pattern is inspired by the Holey Square Shawl by Marianne Sigg.
