My current work in progress:

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


Blocking the Chevron Stole

My “stolen time” worked out well for me, because last night I finished knitting my Chevron Stole.

Here it is pre-blocking.

It measures 22″ wide by 50″ long.

The b locking photo is sort of boring because the lace does not show up well on my black foam blocking board. But here you go.

It now measures 26″ wide by 66″ long.

When I unpin it I promise better photos. 🙂

I knit this from two skeins of MadelineTosh Tosh Sock with this much left over:

As I mentioned before in the blog, I will offer this pattern together with the Chevron Stole pattern that I completed last month. Just have to get the final pattern details done.

You gotta love a Two-fer.


  1. cant wait to see the pattern…loving the color…

  2. Looks like it’s got Lucy’s stamp of approval. Nice!

  3. Okay, maybe I’m just a dumdum, but what are you using along the edges? It looks like a wire/yarn/circ?

    Also, I love the color and the pattern.

  7. I need to get a blocking board like that. I am so tired of blocking my stuff on an old quilt – not so bad in the summer, but in the winter when nothing wants to dry I worry about things getting mildewy.
