My current work in progress:

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


Here-Along, There-Along, Everywhere a Knit-Along!

The knitblog world is teeming with knit-alongs.

However, right now I am making a point to only be involved in knit-alongs with the syllables “lara” in them.

Klaralund-Along News

Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton emailed me the revisions to Klaralund for extended sizing. The errata page is here in pdf format. Ignore that there are bits of text in blue — the file came through to me that way.

Some notes about the knit-along:

It begins at the beginning of September, and Froggy and I are going to have an official kick-off the evening of September 8 (Wednesday) at Knit Happens.

Froggy has a link to sign up for the knit-along over on her blog, by the way.


This one is due to start on October 1, and will be co-hosted by the lovely Kristine of Knit Happens and me.

And the equally lovely and extraordinarily talented Eklectika has made a button for us! Woo-hoo!


I love it!

AbFab Throw

I finished the Sedona throw.


In answer to some questions, it’s approximately 40″ by 50″ in size. It doesn’t photograph well for some reason. But there’s a better picture of it folded up:


I started another AbFab, this one in the Sideways Stripes pattern, in my own made up colorway. Here are the yarns:


Some of the yarn is in the Monet colorway, some in the Velvet Bilberry colorway. And two of the mohairs are not Colinette, but are Plymouth Outback mohair, bought from Elann a couple of months back.

Happy Monday! Ease yourself back into the week!


  1. Wendy,the blocks are perfect for Sedona—the colors and design are reminiscent of Sedona’s Oak Creek Canyon! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Those yarns for the next AbFab look scrumptious — I really like the purple yarn down front. I’m sure it’s going to look as good as the AbFab you just completed. Thumbs up!

  3. Well, Rapunzel, your ‘do is looking great.

    Mine is the longest it’s been in years but I’m not close.

    I declare you the winner of the ponytail race.

  4. I am also ooh-ing and ah-ing over the next AbFab yarns. Just gorgeous!

    I am, in fact, following Lucy’s advice, and easing back into the week. I think another espresso will just about do it!

  5. I love the Lara — I usually just watch these knitalongs from the sidelines, but that sweater may just get me out of the grandstand and onto the field!

  6. I love the throw! It’s is so pretty, and I bet feels so soft!! Congrats on the finish!

  7. PSHAW…hee hee…

    Lovely pic of Lucy today – you can really see the rich colors in her fur…*virtually petting Lucy’s fuzzy head*

  8. I love your AbFab! It is so beautiful… soon you will be able to cuddle under it on those cool autumn nights! I look forward to seeing your new one in the different colorway.

  9. Hi Wendy, The Sedona throw is gorgerous. I wish I can have one in my sitting room. I think it is the best home decoration thingy.

    Happy knitting !
