My current work in progress:

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


London, We Are Praying For You.

Just dropping in to let you know — L-B just emailed me to tell me that Jill posted to the Rowan message board that Polly, Jacinta, Carol G. and Sharon are all safe. And Amelia is out of London, in Wales, I believe.

Other London knitters we know — are you okay?


  1. Thanks for sharing the info here, Wendy.

  2. Where’s Kristine? Any word?

  3. Kristine is in Italy now, I’m pretty sure. I believe she left London on Tuesday.

  4. A chaotic day in the city but thankfully my boss agreed we could leave early and I’ve managed to get home. I was looking forward to going to Liberty’s tonight but I’m thankful that I’m not going to be there now

  5. Thanks for the update and I’m glad Kristine’s already in Italy. I was worried about them when I heard.

  6. Kerrie (of MagKnits) posted that she is OK. No phones, but she can email and post!

  7. Good to hear that many London kniters are ok. I was running late for work today, otherwise would have got caught up in it. I work in the road next to where the bus bomb went off. Our college is practically closed until Monday.

  9. Thanks for the update. I wasn’t sure if Kristine was still there or not.

  10. Thanks for your prayers. Like Yvonne, I was going to go to Liberty’s tonight, but guess that will have to wait….Good to know that Kristine is safely out of London.

  11. Thanks for the update – I’d been haunting blogs but hadn’t been able to get away from work for long enough to do anything else.

    Wendy, thanks for the update and to all of the Londoners who checked in to let us know you’re well. It goes without saying that America stands with you as you were with us on September 11th and during its aftermath when so many Americans were stranded throughout Europe. As a freqent visitor to London I was sadly watching coverage on US networks and BBC America as much as possible today. Here’s hoping your city is back to normal soon.
