My current work in progress:

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


Not Ruffled Not Kauni

Behold my new work in progress:

Here’s a shot without Lucy:

While it is a sideways knit garter stitch piece, it is not ruffled and it is not Kauni.

This is MadelineTosh Tosh Sock in the Jade colorway. Yes, in a surprise move, I am knitting with green yarn.

Honestly compels me to confess that I chose this particular yarn from the stash because it was already wound into a ball. I’m happy that I did — it’s very pretty and is working up nicely.

So this is a little shawlette, knit sideways, with a lace edging and some shaping in the body of the piece achieved with short rows. (I had to get my short rows in there somewhere.)

I will likely have it completed the next time I blog. There will be no blog post on Sunday. I’m going down to Chincoteague Island for the weekend for Carodan Farm’s SoXperience. So I’ll be back on the blog on Tuesday.

Lucy is getting some extra lap time before I go:
