Marin

Project Description

What are you most proud of? My floats not being too tight. I'm ambidextrous, so I knit with both hands. When I do color work, I hold the yarn in both hands. Sometimes this can cause my gauge to be slightly off. With this sweater, my gauge stayed really consistent throughout the color work. What advice would you give someone starting this project? The techniques are pretty straightforward, so I can see this being a great project for an adventurous/advanced beginner. I'm a little above average height (5'7") with long arms, so I added about 3 or so inches to both the body and the arm length of the size 34". I used my favorite sweater, according to Ragga's advice, to customize the Marin to fit the way I like. I wasn't so sure about the Lettlopi yarn because it felt a little rough to the touch to me, but after I washed it (I used eucalan), it became soft and cozy. The sweater is lightweight but warm, and it was perfect for the rainy, cold winter Seattle day yesterday.
