My current work in progress:

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



Cue Judy Collins . . .

There was a pretty sky this morning. Here it is at 6:41 a.m.


And 12 minutes later, at 6:53 a.m.


Here at 7:13 a.m.


And another 7:13 a.m. shot.


Can you tell that blog fodder is still thin on the ground?

But stop the presses! I finished the second Aimee Sock.


As soon as I finalize the pattern I’ll send it on over to The Loopy Ewe, along with the Cables and Ribs Sock pattern.

Or is that Ribs and Cables?

Here’s what I’ll be casting on with tonight:


That’s the Tempted Good Grrl sock yarn in the Lucky Lucy colorway. I set my camera on the table in front of the ball and pressed the shutter. I love how the photo came out — it almost looks like the yarn has a bit of an aura.

Lucy sez:


My chair!”


  1. Oh, the socks are absolutely GORGEOUS! (and the clouds, too!)

  2. My camera never takes good sky pics I need a better one. Lucy loves her chair, and I love pink socks.

  3. I personally find it reassuring to see others struggling with blog content – just admitting that is really all the blog content you needed, in my mind. πŸ™‚

    steven and meredith say: “cousin lucy, make sure you rub your momma so that all the other kitties know to whom momma belongs!”

    mind you, I am trying to type this with meredith rubbing me that way…not easy, I tells ya!

  5. I would love the butterfly sock in the new colorway! Do you ever get ‘designer block’?!

    Pretty sky. Pretty sock. Gorgeous Lucy.

  7. Wendy ~ didn’t know how to contact you other than through your blog…. John & I have come up with something I think Lucy will like (especially since I named it after her!) Would you please email me at Hugs, Chappy

  8. I am so close to Lucy, yet so far away…. Now I know why they say there are 2 ways to travel: first class, and with children. (;

  9. Saw a review of a movie called “wendy & lucy” starring michelle williams. it was not about knitting and lucy was a dog. I was surprised.

  10. I absolutely adore the Aimee pattern. I can hardly wait to get my hands on your book so I can learn this toe-up stuff. I’m perfectly happy doing cuff-down, but I want to be able to knit YOUR patterns.

  11. Ooh! Please sends lots of copies of Aimee because I need to buy one — and am not as fast as all those Loopie Groupies!

  13. Theresa in Italy says:

    Judy Collins would be proud. And the socks are lovely, too! Never mind about blog content, just get those patterns ready for your adoring fans!

  14. Doesn’t Judy Collins sing Send in the Clowns?

    Still the pictures are pretty…
    The socks prettier!!!

  16. Lucy reminds me of the car commercial where the guy licked the door handle to make the car his during a really huge sale. I seem to remember years ago my sister doing the same for whatever item we all wanted and only one could have….hey, if it works….

    miss sandras last blog post..Uh, What?

  17. I love the socks. I think they are my favorite of your patterns so far. Can’t wait for the pattern.

  18. Michele In Maine says:

    How about “You Want Ribs With That?”

  19. Can’t beat a classic Joni Mitchell song!

    The butterfly socks are fab!

  20. You mean all yarn doesn’t have an aura?!?!?! All of mine seems to carry this aura of happiness around with it. Unless it misbehaves, and then it seems to have devil horns coming out of the ball.

  21. I just want to pick Lucy up and give her a huge hug! I’m sure that wouldn’t be appreciated from a stranger, though, so I”m doing it virtually πŸ™‚

    Marys last blog post..Foraging fun

  22. Ah, the lovely DC sunrise! Actually, it was so sunny I just wanted to curl up on a bench outside before work and knit for a while. Unfortunately, the COLD metal bench and the COLD wind off the Potomac put paid to that brilliant idea. But it sure *looked* like a great day for knitting outdoors!
