Love the colours, they really pop off the page. I might be tempted to add to my list. Gorgeous.

I ordered the yarn for my Swarf, but while waiting for it to arrive got distracted by a sweater … which also happens to be a marl using la bien Aimee’s Helix and mohair silk. I got sucked into this one because I searched for yarns using Gotland wool. (I have two Gotland sheep, Miles and Olive.) I ordered the Stone and Sandstone and then had to go hunting for the mohair silk. The different fibers interact in interesting textural and reflective ways in addition to color. In all, I wound 4.6 km of yarn over the weekend and am well into the yoke pattern. The Swarf yarn arrived today, and I am now torn. Do I bang out a Swarf or keep on sweatering along?

The number of colors is impressive. It is a beautiful blanket.

Reversible sounds amazing. But what about the sleeves? One red/orange/yellow and the other green/blue?

I think I’m going to make one sleeve go with the front and the other sleeve match the back. I think lots of examples don’t have matching sleeves.

Just started the third marl section — this is potato-chip knitting at its finest! BTW I am using Tvinni…

What a great, yet difficult decision to have to make!

A Swoof! What a brilliant idea! This is not a Swoof, but, my wonderful dog Rosie is almost 17 years old and she does feel the draughts in the old farm house where we live. I made her a colour explosion mini throw which she seems to like. And the alpaca naturals are a perfect match for her own coat! I think a Swoof is next!

Wowza love seeing what all you marlers are making! Makers are marling? From whichever angle, it’s all fabulous!

I have set aside my Color Explosion Throw to pick up a SWARF for the lightning-round KAL! Just now ready to start color 3… and just like Color Explosion, this is Lays Potato Chip Knitting! Just one more row… just one more segment…

Trying to post a picture here but getting denied. Can anyone give me a little tutorial? Says I can’t post as a new user.

Thanks for this fun community!

Almost finished! I loved the expression of ‘potato chip knitting’! It really is hard to stop once you start. I changed the back a bit……because I am using 6 strands of lace weight, mine is a bit thicker and so I chose to knit a modified moss stitch for the back as it would lie flatter and not be too thick over my shoulders. I won’t really know until I block it.
