My current work in progress:

Benedict, designed by Michele Wang, knit from Rowan Softknit Cotton in the Cocoa colorway, on a U.S. size 6 and 8 needle.

Miles of Stockinette

Starting Week Eleven of house arrest, and there’s not much to do apart from working and knitting. Therefore . . .

I have joined sleeves to body of my sweater and am embarking on the yoke.There’s still a lot of work to do on this but hopefully I’l get it finished this week.

Meanwhile, this is the start of Week Ten of House Arrest. As you can see, Loki is conserving his strength for the coming week!

Benedict Pullover

Ta-da! I finished my Benedict Pullover last night. This is a pattern by Michelle Wang and I knit mine from Rowan SoftKnit Cotton, another of my favorite Rowan yarns that has been discontinued. I try not to take that too personally. In other news, guess who has a birthday this week?
