My current work in progress:

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


And Miles To Knit Before I Sleep


But I am making progress — see? I’ve gone past the bottom point.


I’ve not much to say at the moment. I’m taking a page from Margene‘s book and working on a de-cluttering project. So armed with my Arthritis Formula Tylenol, I shall return to it.

While Lucy supervises.



  1. Shawl looking good (at least I finished the Second Sock this weekend so the syndrome won’t befall me! Lucy looks like she’s ready for a kitty treat(tho Nikki has that look and position right before going for the comb!)

  2. I love a good literary allusion. Thanks for raising the bar, Wendy.

  3. Love the edging~in fact, love the whole shawl! Lucy looks less than impressed , though.

  4. When you’re designing a shawl edging of your own, how do you decide what sort of method to turn the corner? I’ve learned a lot of different methods over the years and have yet to find one that I always like. Do you have a favorite?

  5. Hope that whatever pain you’re feeling is alleviated soon. I think we all use decluttering as a last resort, but in the end I think it works out to be time well spent. Feel better!

  6. Shawl is absoutely lover-ly. Most impressive the amount of knitting that you do. I am grateful that you say you may not be prolific, but very, very consistent and quick knitter, That helps, as being diligent can help make up for not being super talented. Lucy probably doesn’t feel as though she needs to be overly enthusiastic about Mom’s fab knitting and there is nothing better that a supervisor who lets you get your work done and doesn’t interfere!
