My current work in progress:

Geiger by Norah Gaughan, knit from Wollmeise Merino DK in the “Schwefel” colorway, using 3.25mm and 3.75mm needles.


I finally, at long last, finished Boxy last week!

Boxy082315 207x240 Boxy

I started Boxy on April 19 and finished it on August 19. But I did complete a lot of other projects during that time, including two cardigans, three shawls, a whole bunch of animals and bunny dresses.

To recap, Boxy is knit from Handmaiden Mini Maiden in the Polar Sea colorway on a U.S. size 4 needle. Here’s a close-up of the neckline:

I haven’t tried it on yet, so can’t comment on how I like it at this point.

  5. Your Boxy is gorgeous; love the color! Loki looks like he is supervising well!

  6. I thought Alodia was beautiful but couldn’t decide how I thought it would be to wear it. I’ll be interested to see what you think when you’re done.

  7. Your Boxy looks comfy, and wow what a color! I so want to reach right into the screen and pet Loki’s ears. With two cats, I buy lint rollers by the six-pack, how ’bout you?

  8. I, too, just finished my Boxy. I actually started a different sweater (bottom up) and decided to finish it off with the Boxy pattern. Makes me happy. I plan to get yarn to make another as it is a perfect pull-on for chilly days. I must also report that I am so happy to have found my “Wendy Knits Lace” book! Now if I could only find the sock book!

    Did you knit separate pieces or all in the round, and why did you do what you did. Any comments on,this,question?
