My current work in progress:

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


Get Back

My new cardi-in-progress now has a back. Or rather it will within the hour, as I am almost done with the raglan decreases.

For the left side front and the back I have used only 2 skeins of my yarn. Not bad!

Since I don’t have anything particularly thrilling to say about my cardi-in-progress, I shall now distract you by showing you Cute Things.

Look at my new Piddleloop bag!

This is the Large Wedge Bag, and it is a very nice size — big enough for me to put a piece of my cardi in, and certainly big enough to carry around a lace shawl project.

I love Mr. Kitty appliqued and embroidered onto one side.

I love my Large Wedge Bag so much, that I bought a Piddly Bag too — to put my knitting bits and bobs in.

The Piddly Bag is big enough for a sock project, so I may at some point change my mind and use it for that purpose!

Lucy would wish you all a good weekend, but she is busy resting up for said weekend!


  1. I am so excited about the cardi. I love the way it looks and hope to able to get the pattern and knit one of my very own.

    What’s the story behind Lucy?

  8. I can’t get over that you are knitting your cardi on 7’s. The sweater looks like a much finer gauge in the pictures. What gauge are you averaging?

  9. That is a nice bag. I don’t need more bags, because somewhere along the line I realized that I have developed a collection!

  14. re: Get back…

    Ok, I’m convinced you have Mystery Gknit Gnomes who work through the knight to make it look like you akshully gnit that get-back so fast~ “How does she do it????”

    Miss Lucy is surely dreamin’ of hazing her own Kitten-KaPiddle Bag. ♥♥♥

  15. The reason you’ve only needed 2 skeins so far is because you’re so skinny now!

  20. Wendy,
    Love the cardi. Can’t wait until the pattern comes out.
    Please enter my name in the current give-a-way. Thanks.

  21. thanks for sharing

  22. Would love to have the Cathy Caron Book “Cowlgirls”. What a cute title!’ I love her patterns, but have yet to try one. No time like the present. I’m knitting socks from the cuff down right now out of Kroy jacqard that’s knitting up so great in a green, red, blue, cream, greyish blue colorway of stripes.
