Marina the Mermaid by Molly Ritchie
'Marina the Mermaid' is a whimsical hand-knitted doll by artist Molly Ritchie. Working with hand-dyed merino and bright novelty yarns, the colours of Ritchie's materials are symbolic: yellow for the sun, blue for the water, tan and grey for the eagles, and so on.
Ritchie makes knitted and crocheted fantasy creatures including fairies, unicorns, dragons and mermaids. She also makes seahorses, crabs, fish and flying pig fridge magnets, as well as crocheted dreamcatchers, mandalas and bracelets. Molly is a member of the Baddeck Quilters Guild and her creations have appeared in their shows. Molly enjoys working with unusual and hand-dyed yarns.
