My current work in progress:

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


Got Back

I have finished the back of my lace tunic — see?

The lace pattern shows up better against a dark background:

I have all the stitches resting on lengths of yarn, divided into three sections.

Each side will be bound off with the front in a three-needle bind-off, and the center group is the back of the neck, to be knit up into a narrow neckband after the front and back are attached at the shoulders.

I’ve started work on the front.

Meanwhile, a gratuitous shot of Teddy.

Teddy had been on an extended vacation since I haven’t knit a sock in a while. He was beginning to wonder if I had fired him as my sock model. I have however promised him a new gig as a mitten model, so he is posing with my Camp Loopy yarn. He starts next weekend, after I get started on my next Camp Loopy project, cabled mittens.

Lucy says hello.

She wanted you to see her perfect little nose in profile.


  1. Wonderful looking back on the sweater…and a perfect little nose if I ever saw one!!!

  2. Shirley. in PA says:

    Lucy looks like she’s choosing a book. Your sweater is looking good.

  3. Very pretty! Both the sweater and Lucy.

  4. So beautiful!! I hope I can make this someday 😉

  5. Back in the days, when I started to read your blog, you was knitting sock after sock. It even got me want to knit one pair, which is strange because I just hate to wear them, first thing when I enter my house – even in wintertime – is 1. get rid of my shoes 2. take off my socks and toss them away. Then you somehow stopped making them. I was wondering lately what happend to your sock knitting, are you still making them ocassinally and not showing us, did you get bored, do you have too much socks alredy?

    Beautiful sweater and darling kitty. What could possibly be better?

  7. double lovelies

  8. Love the color and the pattern you are using. Can’t wait to see it finished!

  9. Loving the lace sweater — and glad to see Lucy being her usual relaxing self

  10. Yay, I’ve missed Teddy. And of course it goes without saying that the tunic back and Lucy are beautiful!

  11. I am looking forward to getting my yarn for my next Loopy project. I’m hoping I manage to finish it in time. I was looking at how long my project took others on Ravelry and it ranged from 2 weeks to 2 months!

  12. When will the pattern for that lovely lace sweater be available??

  13. Hey guys, if you are intersted in this you should probably check out this Barbara Walker DVD review! Who doesn’t want to be tutored by the legend herself!

  14. Teddy _and_ Madelinetosh?!!?!!!
    You tease me so, Wendy!
