My current work in progress:

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


Move Along

Nothing much to see here.

I’m still knitting along on my shawl — see?

And I have the yarn for my Daily Sweater (from the second Mason-Dixon Knitting book, which comes out tomorrow):

This is Rowan Calmer, colorway is Khaki.

And Lucy seems to think she is an audio-visual component.


  1. Your talk of the new book reminds me…. did you ever finish your Mason Dixon log cabin blanket made with leftover sock yarn???

    Love your blog and kitty pictures.

  2. I know I’ve said this before, but that yarn is (the shawl – the Rowan is nice too, but not as much of a stunner visually) gorgeous. I’m looking forward to seeing it all spread out and finished!

  3. Lucy *is* an AV component – she is pleasing to look at and her meows are probably equally nice ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I checked my local bookstore over the weekend because they sometimes put knitting books out as soon as they’re received. No Mason-Dixon yet. I’ll check on my way home tonight. I *have* noticed though that the knitting stock has peaked – they’ve gone from 6 shelves at Barnes & Noble to 3 shelves. ๐Ÿ™

  4. Lucy is much cuter than a dvd player. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. O.K. You officially make me sick. NO dust on the shelves! The shelves that my TV & DVD sit on look like they’re covered with nuclear fallout.
    Seriously though, with the Rowan Calmer being 75% cotton, is it hard on the wrists at all? Not that Peaches n Creme and Calmer are in the same category, but, I can’t knit with dishcloth cotton, it makes my wrists ache. I haven’t tried any cotton blends.

  6. Only cats can think a hard surface can be comfortable.

    I am thinking of trying your toe up method socks this week, maybe, if I can get brave.

  7. Margie from Maryland says:

    Well, she is certainly a VISUAL component – fluffy too.

  8. Maybe she’s dropping the hint that “Driving Miss Lucy” would be a great flick!

  9. May I respectfully accuse you of lying like a rug? There’s lots to see here! In particular, your photogenic audio-visual components….

    A whole sweater of Calmer, mmmm. Dreamy!

  10. Like the way the Rowan Calmer looks. Hopefully my book will be here in next couple of days. Amazon sent e-mail that it shipped over the weekend. Can’t wait to check it out.

  11. I love the color of your shawl. It’s going to be lovely. And I’m glad Miss Lucy approves of the TV stand you put together. Hope you are feeling fine in spite of the effort put out for putting it together.

  12. That yarn for the sweater looks just grand! I’m sure it will turn out to be lovely when completed. And, as Jen asks, did you ever finish the log cabin blanket with the leftover sock yarns? I’d love to see it again!

  13. I’m sure Lucy believes that she is all the audio/visual you will ever need.

    I’m definitely putting that book on my Christmas list.

  14. I nominated you – check out my post at for more details ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. I pre ordered my book and am anxious to recieve it. I especially loved the sweatshirt style sweater. I live in those sweatshirt sweaters from Eddie Bauer most winter days. They are so comfy!! Thanks so much for sharing the info!!

  16. I have been wanting to get some Calmer for a while, but haven’t done so yet. It always looks so creamy and soft in photos of FOs.

    Another take on the Lucy thing is that she might be thinking of becoming an audio visual technician. I’ve heard some cats tend in that direction these days.

    Hope you are all well,
