My current work in progress:

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


To-Do List

1. Finish second sleeve.

2. Attach said sleeve to body using a three-needle bind-off.

3. Sew up side seams.

4. Shrink coat in washer/dryer.

Stay tuned!


  1. I will, and am looking forward to seeing this thing done. I’m sure it’ll be amazing.

  3. Wow…that looks really long! I know it will shrink, but it’s beautiful.

  4. I’ve never worked with this yarn before and have a question. Will it shrink proportionately all over? I’m wondering because of your diamonds and cables. Will they all turn out the same length, or is it possible that certain areas might not shrink as much and the consequence would be that some cable or diamond repeats could wind up being smaller/larger than others?

  13. I agree with everyone else. I can’t wait to see the finished product. Felting IS magical, and I think the cables will be fabulous.
