My current work in progress:

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



To add a little variety in my knitting (sleeve knitting gets boring after a while), I joined the shoulders of my It-Might-Be-the-Hawthorn-Pullover-But-Kinda-Sorta-Isn’t via a three-needle bind-off. The pattern does not have any kind of finishing on the neck, but I did a simple crochet chain edging to neaten it up.

And that is the extent of my crochet skillz.

I also set the one finished sleeve into the armhole, but did not sew up that side seam.

And I am just a few rows away from beginning the armhole decreases on the second sleeve, so the end is in sight for this project.

The color is way off in these photos. Chalk that up to artificial light!

I have something really fun planned for my next project.

Meanwhile, I am slowly working on my BFF Scarf. As it is commuter knitting only and I generally knit on it only in the morning, there is not much project. I will make a pattern available for it when I am done, but don’t expect it any time soon!

    Very pretty…but what color is it, really? LOL! Lucy looks a bit on the playful side today! My Penny has been chasing a knitting needle point protector all over today, including under the living room rug…that made for a lot of playfulness, trying to get it out from under there with one paw!

  5. Your sweater is lovely! All that cabling! If it were me, I would consider a different finish at the neck. Something more substantial and in keeping with the rest of the sweater. Unfortunately, I am unable to wear that neckline… it would droop and become too large an opening. But then, everyone has their opinion 🙂

  6. I love the sweater, but I love Lucy more.

  13. Your crochet skills look fine to me! Heck, while I can and occasionally do more than that, I still feel like the humble single crochet is still the only part I’m actually good at.

  14. Ahhh Lucy, I envy your life. Wendy, love the way the sweater is progressing and that simple neckline is perfect.

  15. Curious mindz want to know: what color is that sweater? Lucy’s saying “just try to tickle my tummy!” Miss HinkyBoo will allow me to pet her tumtum, but if anone else tries it they get all the “pointy places” in their hands — she’s definitely MY baby.

  16. The sweater is coming together. You’ll be happy with the extra support along the neckline.

  17. That sweater is beautiful in any color…. Can’t wait to see the next project.

  18. OOO – Look at that MAGNIFICENT kitty tummy just begging to be rubbed!

  19. I think you have a marvelous sweater. My color must be off, too, I remembered it as a light green?? Lucy is all fluffed up and ready to go!

  20. I love that square neckline!

  21. Hey Wendy, is your picture blower upper thingy working right? I used to be able to click on the pics & get that enlarged image, but it’s not worked the last few times. Is it me or you?

  22. love the sweater and love how you include Lucy at the end of your posts, lol love it great work once again, and the square neck is just fab.
