My current work in progress:

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


Not Viajante

I finished my Not-Viajante on Friday night. Here is a photo of it, unblocked.


I had purchased 5 skeins of Dream in Color Smooshy With Cashmere, but ended up using only 4 of them. I was going to use the fifth ball, but decided the piece was long enough after 4 skeins.

I based this on the Viajante pattern by Martina Behm, but completely changed the increases to make it wider and shorter. I am very pleased with the results!

I have released the pattern for my Camp Loopy Project One: As You Like It Scarf. The pattern is a free download on Ravelry.


It is highly customizable and an easy and fun knit. You could use pretty much any yarn you like.

Speaking of Ravelry, there are apparently some hiccups n their pattern update notifications. I released Part 2 of my Mystery Shawl at midnight on Friday, and apparently not everyone got the email and Ravelry message notifying them of the update. So if you are in that situation, check your Ravelry library — the Mystery Shawl pattern should show that there is an update available.

  4. Thank you for the ‘As You Like It’ Scarf. It’s in my cue and I’m looking forward to making it. I think it will be lovely in the fingering weight. Haven’t decided what to use – I’ve got a lot in my stash and will have to explore.

    Will you share your changes to Not Viajante? I want to knit but it seems quite long for my 5’3″ height. Wider and shorter sounds better to me
