My current work in progress:

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


Linen Stitch Progress

Yes! I made some good progress on my sweater yesterday afternoon and evening.

I am now past the armhole and am motoring my way up the back. I now have 4 more inches of linen stitch done, and I am about to switch to the simple lace stitch and do that for 4 inches.

It’s nice to have a positive sign of progress.

In other news, the Gothic Spires Stole/Scarf pattern is now available for sale in my Ravelry store here. Five bucks for the pattern for both stole and scarf. Such a deal.

Pardon my brevity, but I’m not at my best today. I need to return to my furry nurse.

    I’m sorry to hear your back is playing up again. I had booked a class with you in London next month and have been told today that you won’t be coming. I am so disappointed! But look after yourself.

  5. sorry to hear you’re not at your best. Take care of yourself. I will be sending positive vibs your way.

  6. I’m glad the linen stitch is moving along. It’s so annoying when you knit and knit and have nothing to show for it.

    Yes, please do go use the healing powers of cat. Fuzzy nurses are the best.
