My current work in progress:

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



I accomplished a lot of knitting this weekend. First of all, I finished my Camp Loopy III project, Brickless:


This is a large piece, 120″ long on the top edge and 20″ deep at the deepest point.


I think it turned out well — I an very happy with the combination of yarn and pattern.



Next up, I completed Clue 1 of the Outlander MKAL . . . but no spoiler pics.

Third, I knit this:


This is the “tongue” of my knitted shoe.


Loki is speechless.

    No spoilers, eh? I bought the pattern but will not buy the yarn until I know if it’s something I need (and by “need” I mean “where-the-hell-would-I-put-another-shawl”). I saw somewhere that someone has woven a “Claire” shawl. Looks like the one in the first episode. First time I’ve been interested in weaving.

    Love, love, love the Brickless! Much as I love bright colors, I don’t wear them and am really attracted to items made in muted, or earthy, colorways.

    If Loki truly is speechless, he hasn’t known you long enough. LOL

    Wow, you are amazing! Love the Brickless, it’s elegant and so soft looking. I can’t believe you knit a tongue. What fun! Your beautiful Loki is probably waiting to play with your sneaker.

  3. I have no idea how you can knit so quickly. How I wish I could! I takes me a couple months to knit a shawl! Oh well, at least it gets done. Hi Loki!

  4. Your shawl is amazing and those shoes look cool.

  5. Mary Tole says:

    I too am blown away by your speed, do you take time to eat or sleep? I’m like Patricia, takes me a couple of months for most shawls, if they are beaded much longer. I love the way Brickless turned out, I have the pattern and yarn set aside in my knit soon projects. It’s nice to get your input about patterns so I was please when you chose to make it. I love the tongue of your shoe, not many would attempt a shoe and it likes yours will be stunning. Loki is always stunning.

  6. Martha Frey says:

    I love the “Brickless” It has a tailored look. It would look great with business suits..

  7. Love Brickless, not sure about the shoes.

    Loki is often speechless, isn’t he?

    Oh my gosh, the knitted shoes are a scream! And how warm! I can see you now, on the chill winter streets of DC in full knitted regalia: hat, multiple cowls, coat, swants, leg warmers, socks, and color-work high-tops. šŸ™‚

  9. Love the knitted addition to your tennies! Double knit or Fair Isle?

  10. Your version of Brickless is wonderful, and very wearable. I have liked the ones done in the zippy colors, but then couldn’t think of how I would wear that. But you’ve given me a new perspective on the pattern. I hope you enjoy the FO.

  11. Wow! The Camp Loopy III is gorgeous but I think I’m more impressed with the shoe tongue. LOL, what a fun project!
