My current work in progress:

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



The Fling is flung and I am back home with Lucy. It was a great weekend and I of course took no photos.

But I did do a videocast with my favorite KnitGirllls — LaLa and Leslie. Little did they know when they asked me to do it that I never shut up. ๐Ÿ˜‰

The videocast is here. You have been warned.

ETA: Leslie and LaLa are experiencing technical difficulties with their site just now — they are working on getting it back up. In the meantime you can view the video on Youtube here — it’s in 5 parts, I think.

Lucy sez:

“I sleep better when Momma is home.”

  6. Wendy – it was great to finally meet you. One always wonders how someone will seem relative to their online personality. No worries – you’re essentially the same in person as you are online. (Smart, funny, irreverent, helpful, etc.)

    Looking forward to seeing you again, maybe even before next Spring Fling, but not likely in London ๐Ÿ™

    (P.S. The link for the videocast doesn’t seem to be working. Can’t tell what’s up – perhaps they exceeded their bandwidth limit? But that isn’t what it says – I get

  12. several of the virtual Flingers used the videocast as their class for the weekend. Lucy, you’re sleeping better because the wild partying has ceased because your momma is home. Hope you got the tuna cans cleaned up before she got home.

  13. Wendy,
    You look AWESOME!! Absolutely adorable. I am truly inspired. Thank you.

  14. The site is back up now so your original link should work!

  15. Wendy, being one of your fans, I was so happy to meet you in person. The class you taught (cables without a needle) really inspired me to get with the Plan and get rid of that cable needle! LOL Being a first-timer at the Fling, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but it was great …. what an amazing group of talented artisans! Thanks for your help with my questions in Class!

  16. Wendy, you look mahvelous! You rock the long hair!
