My current work in progress:

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


A Whole Lotta Stitches

Question: What is this?


Answer: A whole lotta stitches!

The yarn is Elsa Wool Cormo, worsted weight woolen-spun in medium grey, knit on a U.S. size 7 needle. The design is my own. It’s the start of a cape that features Celtic knotwork cabling.


It does not look like much at this point. I have over 600 stitches on the needles, so it takes a very long time to complete a row, particularly if it is a row with cable twists!

“Would someone rub my tummy?”


  1. Fluffy kitty belly!

  2. Love that sweet kitty belly! Your new yarn project looks wonderful too – all in one piece?

  3. That new project looks cool, love knitting cables. Who wouldn’t want to rub fluffy tummy?

  4. Loki looks like a delightful fellow. His modeling career is obviously a success. New cape looks interesting, too.

  5. Who could resist rubbing that tummy. My Samson does that on occasion however we have to be careful, it’s not always an invitation to pet and he will bite. LOL

    I love Celtic Knots so I can’t wait to see this one finished.

    May I be first in linen to rub his tummy? My goodness, how vulnerable he is. My kitty, Duchess does the same thing. I just love it. Your new project looks fabulous!!! Can’t wait to see more. I am amazed at how much knitting you can get accomplished in a short amount of time.
