It seems as though there is always a steady stream of new knitters coming through the yarn shop. Their enthusiasm is infectious and their curiosity is admirable. Unfortunately none of them will ever hold a candle to Marianela!
Marianela started knitting in September of last year (it’s coming up on her knitting anniversary!) and she already has 31 projects on Ravelry. These are not just garter stitch scarf projects either (not that there is anything wrong with that), these are some serious undertakings.
Moving steadily through her impressive knitting repertoire, she has gone from a standard first scarf, through cables, hats, garments, lace, and even a quirky clock! Marianela never shies away from a new technique or a challenge, this I’m sure of.
My very favorite project of Marianela’s is her Tart Sapphire. Knit in Madelinetosh Merino DK, colourway tart. I love the pretty little pearly buttons. I think they give it a rather sophisticated look. The pattern is Sapphire by Hilary Smith Callis.
