My current work in progress:

Seaforth designed by Alice Starmore, knit in British Breeds 5-ply Guernsey Wool on US 3 needles.


Presenting . . .



In all her completed glory.

I actually finished the second sleeve late Sunday evening, so last night simply had to sew this baby together.

I tried her on quickly and am very pleased at how nicely she fits.

My New Knitter

A question the other day about my new knitter and how she’s getting along. Well, she knits and purls like a pro. She’s ordered yarn for the baby afghan she’s going to make (in a basketweave stitch), and we’re waiting for it to arrive.

Critter Knitters Knit-a-thon

The official kick-off date for this is next Monday, March 15. Feel free to start knitting whenever you’re ready, though. We should have all the information pages and the button up by Monday, though.

I won 8 skeins of Plymouth Encore Chunky in an eBay auction last weekend, so I know what I’ll be making my blankets from!

Lucy approves!

    Fantastic sweater, Wendy! I only hope to SOMEDAY attempt to emulate your knitting prowess…

  15. Frida is awesome. It is always cool to see it all come together. Tanks for the inspiration–even if it only results in my getting a stockinette shawl done. Sigh. I aspire to be you!

  16. Frida es impresionante! Your pieces are always so inspiring.

  17. Very beautiful. I love the colors, though I have to say that I am not that great with picking out the colors myself. I am seriously thinking of joining up Ingeborg. I just don’t know if i am ‘ready’ for that level yet *hehe* But you keep inspiring me!!
