My current work in progress:

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


Slow and Steady May Win the Race

But it makes for lousy blog-fodder, I must say.

Like the tortoise alluded to in the title, I am plodding along on my chevron stole.  It is more than half done, but I don’t think the whole thing will be complete until a week from now. It looks like it did yesterday, only a little longer.

So that’s it.

Move along, nothing to see here.

Apart from Miss Lucy, that is.


  1. Gives drive-by kitteh kisses ~ mwaaaaaaaa! ♥♥♥

  2. Awh Lucy, so sweet.

  3. Always a joy to read your blog whether there’s fodder, or not.

  4. Bethany says:

    Miss Lucy is always worth seeing.

  5. Sometimes projects just work that way.

  6. Kathie Brownlee says:

    See the little eye peek? she knows you are taking her picture…and expressing her displeasure over sleep interrupted.

  7. Barb Harger says:

    Nice photo of Lucy!! She is so cute!

  8. I finally got to see a WendyKnits stealth project — got my TLE Sock Club project for March today — and totally love the sock pattern and the yarn (see my blog for a photo). The scarf pattern is cute, too, but I can’t resist a Wendy sock!!

  9. And Miss Lucy is ALWAYS worth seeing!

  10. You could post no pictures of knitting at all and we’d still show up for the Lucy pics. =)

  11. Slick is always ready to see pics of Miss Lucy. As a matter of fact, he says you can just quit knitting. In his opinion, this blog should be all Lucy, all the time!
    .-= Kyrana´s last blog ..Back to Minnesota? Ya, sure. =-.

  12. What an absolute cutie for sure. And she looks so comfy on her very own sheep skin rug!!

  13. I’ve been there with the long lace. I hope you are having a wonderful week.

    Hi Wendy – sorry to here about your back troubles. I wanted to share with you a little tidbit from history that is not well known. Clyde Tambough, who is the person who is credited with discovery the (then) planet Pluto, had a degerating spine problem also. Even though this a very painful and miserable thing to happen, someone who is famous had it also. Good luck – Hester from Atlanta

  15. Lucy has the right idea. I’ve wanted to just plop myself down and laze for days!

  16. Knitting or no – it is always a pleasure to see Miss Lucy. Keep plodding along sweetie!

    I am a fan of your first book (and the patterns – love the classic but still interesting to knit patterns). I have checked the second book on Amazon and hope that it will provide tips in adapting the toe-up to anything. I need to “claim my knitting” and be able to customize if needed…

  18. I love Lucy……..
