Pattern: Marin by Ysolda Teague 
Yarn: Stargazer by Juniper Moon Farms 

From Ravelry: Reversible, symmetrical, with long points and a shape that curves gently around your neck Marin is easy to throw over any outfit. No need to worry about spotting your gift recipient wearing it inside out either. Knit from side to side it makes the most of the simplest stitch patterns and shaping techniques. The entire shawl is worked in garter stitch and ribbing with a few effectively placed cables and neat slipped stitch selvedges. Kitty used 2+ skeins of Juniper Moon Farm's Stargazer (Color 31 - Spinel).
