My current work in progress:

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



While Lucy lolled about at home yesterday:


I was at Knit Happens, helping with inventory. Hence, no blog entry.

We worked really really hard, but we did take a break for chocolate cake!


That would be my birthday cake, baked from scratch (and I understand there was a double boiler involved) by Kristine. And it was great!

I fondled a lot of yarn yesterday and did not knit a single stitch.


  1. Does “helping with inventory” involve buying all the yarn so they have less to count? Mmmm… hope so. Happy belated birthday!

  2. MMMMmmmm, what could be better for a post-birthday celebration than fondling yarn and yummy chocolate cake?
    May your year be filled with decadent pleasures such as those…

  3. Well, if you couldn’t knit the inventory, at least Kristine let you eat cake! ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. I see that your experience touched on ALL the senses.. not a bad way to spend the day. Happy Birthday!

  5. Hmmm… chocolate cake, yarn fondling… sounds like a good evening to me! ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. To fondly fondle (yes, I know it’s a split infinitive!) yarn where no man has fondled before…
    Happy Bday, Wendy!

  7. Cake.

    Me want cake.

  8. All work and no play is not your motto…cake looks yummy. Hope you had a second piece!!

  9. I see Lucy was helping cover the new pillow in cat hair while you were busying playing with yarn.

  10. Happy birthday! Wow, from scratch and melting chocolate even – you were obviously a very good girl to get such decadence! ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Yummy cake! Happy, Happy Birthday!

  12. I Love Lucy…the sweater! She is going to be lovely.

    Happy Birthday!!!!
