  • Beautiful projects! I chose to marl high and low temps of the day for my temperature blanket so I’ll be marling all year!

  • So much beauty! WOW!

  • All so pretty! But I keep going back to look at mmouse15’s throw. The colors are just fabulous! Can she share what she did please?

    • I just went and checked the Marlalong thread in the Lounge, and it looks like mmouse15’s project is the blue-green one which does include a color card in the photo (in this article, it’s the 2nd row, lefthand picture).

      If that’s the one you meant, you should be able to tell which colors from that color card in the picture. Or I’d suggest posting a reply to mmouse15 in that thread, since she’ll get an alert the next time she signs into the Lounge.

      • Thank you. The picture I am referencing is the bottom left throw. Maybe I am not reading the legend correctly to identify the maker?

  • Bravo to all! An amazing source of inspiration.

  • The color combos are spectacular! What a creative knitting community! Need to get my knitting mojo back!

  • I especially love the pillow!! Great fun!!!

  • This has been a very inspiring Marlalong. The color combinations are all terrific!

  • I finished my Swarf last evening in the very muted and beautiful Elizabeth colorway. I think Tynd may be my new favorite yarn to work with. Thanks for a fun Swarfalong!

  • Congratulations to the winners (and all the runners-up)! When do the Meowlalong and Swoofalong start?

  • I wonder what yarns MaryKatherine and LGuilders used in their projects pictured in this post. Are they marling two colors together? These projects and all the others are beautiful! I had so much on my needles I couldn’t knit along, but I’m going to knot a throw before too long!

  • I was so inspired by Kay’s swarf for her dog Olive, I’ve started one for my little gal. Will post pics when it’s a little closer to complete….

  • The Marlalong was such fun! I have been wearing my Marlogram cowl a ton, have ordered yarn for a second one, am almost finished with my Swarf, and made some good progress on finishing my marled Picket Fence blanket.

    Thank you to MDK for hosting the fun, and thank you in advance for the Knitter’s Pride set! I never win random drawings and it was such a lovely and unexpected surprise after what’s turned out to be a particularly difficult week for me. Onward to the Daytripper!
