All of the colors of Spring

marin-3The Marin shawl in Rhichard Devrieze Peppino (color: Flowers) is finished. This feels like the perfect thing for spring. The weather has been mostly lovely here with cooler mornings that require longer sleeves and some afternoons that don’t. Having a cadre of colorful shawls is handy for adding a bit of light warmth that can easily be removed if the weather warms. marinThis was a fairly quick project, finished in a little over a week. This is my second Marin and this time I didn’t run out of yarn. I used a size 5 needle, rather than a 4 like last time. I like the slightly looser drape of this version. It stays around my neck more easily than it’s sibling, with less fussing. marin-4The colors make me happy. As an added bonus, this piece will work with many outfits. marin-2I didn’t make any mods to this pattern, aside from adjusting to a size 5 needle to get gauge. Now I’m on to the next shawl. More soon.

  1. That yarn is fabulous! A perfect piece to wear for spring, not too hot but keeps that chilly breeze off the neck. Can you believe that just one needle size can make all the difference in how much you like/wear something?

  2. Love the color of this knit! Very spring, and the perfect size small enough to not get in the way but big enough to keep the chilly spring breeze off your neck. Can you believe that going up one needle size can make that much of a difference in a piece?!

What do you think?
