My current work in progress:

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


Cape Cape Cape

Still slogging along on my Celtic Cable Cape. I can see some progress


The rows are getting progressively shorter, but they are still taking a very long time. I was hoping to get this done before next weekend since I am going away for the weekend, but it doesn’t look likely. There is still a great deal to be done here. So the Cape will come with me.



It is a lovely chilly day here. Sunny, but with a brisk cold breeze. A good day to have the windows open a crack so the fresh air can come inside while you knit on your never-ending project.

Loki’s Plan for the Day




  1. Good plan!

  2. Loki is brilliant. So is the cape.

  3. Your cape is gorgeous, Wendy. And Loki and I have the same plan for the day. He is such a beautiful and sweet kitty. You are blessed! Bess

  4. Loki is one handsome boy! I’m really loving your cape too.

  5. Ann Headrick says:

    Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful.
    Curious… Do you only work on one thing at a time or, like me, have a multitude of projects on the needles at one time. Always at least one pair of socks, toe up two at a time, a lace project (or maybe two) and something mindless, possible more.

  6. Midnite Baker says:

    Love those Celtic Knots. Very Nice. Loki will love it for a bed. 🙂 M

  7. slog on – it looks great. Loki, productive as ever!!

  8. The cables are beautiful! One day, I’ll get there. Loki looks quite content!

  9. Kitty Duckett says:

    That cape is looking incredible, please, will you be publishing the pattern in due course? What a wonderful curl-up-on the sofa project for the winter…..

  10. Alice in Richmond says:

    Ooo, maybe I get to see the finishing!!

  11. Elaine Larsen says:

    The cape is beautiful! It looks like it will be heavy and warm – worthy of a walk across the moor.
    You are a very talented knitter, thanks for sharing.

  12. Lovng the beautiflu cape can’t wait for the kit. Loki is relaxed as ever. enjoy your weekend trip .

  13. Charlotte says:

    humm, you could narrow the top even more & it could become a lovely skirt for the Christmas Tree bottom. In all my research, I have yet to find a knitting pattern for one I like, but I think your cape pattern converted would be great!

  14. Charlotte says:

    okay, I write faster than I think – I could just decrease it by a panel or two, because that’s what Berroco does in reverse with to turn their skirt into a cape, which I’ve begun already, but with Cascade 220 fingering weight & size 3 to make a smaller version.

  15. Love your cape Wendy. It is coming along nicely! Your work is so inspiring. Loki looks so relaxed; thanks so much for sharing.

  16. Turning out so lovely…!

  17. Ohhh! What a beautiful cape this is! A blankie perhaps for Loki!

  18. Catherine S. says:

    This project is turning out beautifully, Wendy. I can’t wait to see how you finish it all off!

  19. Love this! You reminded me I have a cape from Scotland! I am still drawn to this and wonder if it wouldn’t make a lovely tree skirt?

  20. The cape is coming along nicely! I love the warm color too. Loki looks so sweet and fluffy – as always!

  21. Love!!♥♥
