My current work in progress:

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


More Changes

The Triquetra Capelet is no more.

Shortly after my last blog post, I decided that a. the yarn I was using was not right for the design, and b. I wanted to size down the capelet a bit. So I ripped it out.

I plan to knit it with a smaller circumference in a different yarn, which I have ordered. Since I am going to be starting over, I completely re-did the cable knot motifs used.

So when I knit it again, it will be longer, smaller around, and with a different cable motif. That’s all. 🙂

To kill time before my yarn gets here, I started another Viajante. Well, it is Viajante-like, anyway.

Viajante is a long skinny tube and as such, when worn as a poncho it is rather fitted across the shoulders. So for my second version, I changed the increases, increasing at each side until it hits the shoulder.


I am using Dream in Color Smooshy With Cashmere in the “Medieval” colorway. I love both the yarn and the colorway!


Lucy is thinking about it.



  1. It’s a shame when things don’t work out as planned, but at least you appear to have caught it early! I just love the way “Triquetra” sounds. I do hope you keep the name 🙂

  2. I’m sure the new-and-improved Triquetra Capelet will turn out great!
    The Viajante pattern looks awesome…I think I need to try it sometime!
    And Lucy-cat…don’t think too hard about it…it’s yarn. Be happy! 🙂

    Happy knitting!

    So glad that I am not the only person who starts a project and then has to rip it out because of a change in size or yarn.
