Winners + Marin Shawl

First off, congratulations to our winners! I have contacted these three folks to arrange for the delivery of their prizes: Carrie P, Sweetpurls and Ellie Raine Knits. Thanks to everyone who entered and shared this contest, and thanks very much to the folks from Stash2Go for generously donating the prizes!

If you didn't win the giveaway this week, I hope you'll check out the Stash2Go app on iTunes; downloads are just $3.99 and they're going to be adding some really great new features in the near future!

At long last, I am pleased to share my finished Marin shawl! I love how this turned out, and despite some crazy-looking charts, it was actually a fairly simple project to make. I did run out of yarn just as I was finishing up, but that was only because I'd used a bit of this skein to knit a few rows on a snippet scarf earlier this year - otherwise I would have had plenty of yarn to finish this project! The yarn is lovely to work with, so I don't mind having a mostly-full skein of yarn left over....I just need to remember that it's missing a bit of yardage so that history doesn't repeat itself!

Pattern: Marin by Ysolda Teague
Yarn: Hazel Knits Artisan Sock in Jam Session
Close-up detail: love the subtle shading of this yarn!
It was a challenge to get this entire shawl in frame!
