Marion and Marian show off.

One of the great joys of knitting, besides knitting itself, is seeing what other people are knitting. It's a large part of why Ravelry exists, and it's one of my favorite parts of my job at the Hillsborough Yarn Shop. Not only do I get in on the knitting plans as they're being made, but I also often see the finished product, proudly brought in to show off. I always get to ooh and ahh, and touch the finished sweaters, scarves, and hats. Sometimes I get to take a picture, too.

You may know Marion as our magic loop sock teacher. She does more than just socks, though. She's pictured above in her recently completed February Lady Sweater, knit with Briggs & Little Sport held double. Marion is quite the sweater knitter--check out her class on the Vogue Sleeveless Tunic on the shop website.

Meanwhile, Marian keeps coming in with incredible lace shawls. Her latest: a capelet from the Spring/Summer 2010 issue of Vogue Knitting, knit with Lana Grossa Chiara. The photo doesn't do this sparkly shawl justice. 

Thanks for sharing your knitting with us, ladies!

  1. Marion's sweaters are always beautiful! Marian's shawl is stunning: it must be seen up close & personal for its sparkle to be appreciated!
