My current work in progress:

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


The Threes Have It

I am almost all the way through one repeat of the color changes in my rainbow colorway Kauni yarn.


At this point, the piece measures 21″. The skein of rainbow Kauni I am using weighed 264 grams before I started knitting, and as I wound it, I noted that it contained three complete repeats of the rainbow of colors. I weighted the skein at this point, and it weighs 180 grams. So I am right on target here. I have a third of the length of the piece done, I’ve used one of three colorway repeats, and have used almost a third of the yarn by weight.


I love it when things work out.

The foreground yarn, the black Kauni, is put up in 150-gram skeins. I know I’ll need two of them, and mot likely part of a third skein, since I am going to work the edge in black

Because this piece is a bit too large to easily carry to work I am going to wind up this yarn and start a smaller project.


Lucy can’t wait to find out what it is going to become!


Well, that might be an exaggeration.



  1. That’s really stunning, Wendy. I think I like the Kauni against the solid black even more than I like it against itself.

  2. Its beautiful! Kauni is one of my very favorite yarns and this is a gorgeous project for it.

  3. I love the design. Never having done colorwork, but am an experienced knitter, would a pattern like this be a good ‘first time colorwork’ piece?

    Wendy, I am always amazed at how quickly you can complete a project. Approximately how many hours a day to you spend knitting? I know you have a full-time job outside of the home.

    Thank you.

  4. The colorwork kick continues!

    I hate it when projects get too big to carry around.

  5. Love the design you are using and the colors of the yarn in the Kuni against the black are absolutely stunning! Gorgeous Wendy!!! Love the new photo of Lucy too!

  6. It is quite lovely…and love that pic of Lucy!

  7. I love all the bright colours! I understand projects getting too big to carry around. I’ve got a shawl in my purse that’s just about too big. Soon it’ll have to become a stay-at-home project, and something else will have to take it’s place.

  10. I love that pattern with that yarn!! It’s a beautiful piece and I’m always amazed at how fast you knit these up.
    I’d be delighted if I could knit half that fast!


  11. Please, oh please tell us that you’ll be writing up a pattern- or at least a chart- for this gorgeous wrap. I’ll be the first to buy a copy. I just love it.

  12. I can’t wait to see it finished!!
