My current work in progress:

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


Cloudy With a Chance of Knitting

The weather looks promising.

I’ve finished the back of my sweater.

I’ve started the front.

And Lucy is thinking about hunkering down for a nap.

We’ll see how we do!


  1. Fall is the best knitting time…if you can take your eyes off the colors…enjoy!!!

  2. Carolina sky but brisk breeze and cool temps makes knitting the project of the day — and the Yarn Crawl in the surrounding area started Friday — perfect weather!

  3. Love the border!

  4. Very pretty design. Love the cute little pillow behind Lucy … looks just like her!

  5. Sara in WI says:

    Your sweater is gorgeous! (And so is Lucy.)

  6. Which condo place do you live in? Sorry to pry – I’m just getting ready to buy a place in Alexandria/Fairlington/Arlington and was curious how you like your condo.

  7. Knitting and napping is my kind of day!

  8. I am so jealous of you lace work 1 your so fast, but I can live with that but I along with the speed you seem to have many issues with mistakes slowing you down, I use markers and track line by line and repeat by repeat and I have done pretty well with some in the past, but my current piece is just a small shawl type to wear over a jacket as a type of scarf and it is a simple pattern and I have actually have been able to memorize it but after many tink backs for not coming out correct I have tracked line by line and with markers and I am ready to frog it completely and find a new pattern for same type of thing I am hoping you might have a suggestion for another way to help track everything. If not thanks for reading and the mental support

  9. Beautiful! Yes, indeed it would make a nice shawl or wrap…

  10. There is a skirt in a new book by CEY that reminds me of the back of this sweater. Looks interesting to knit.

  11. Love cloudy days!
