My current work in progress:

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


New Project

I’ve been working on a new project for the past week. It’s the Woodfords Cardigan, designed by Elizabeth Doherty and it is from Wool People Volume 8.

The original was made form Brooklyn Tweed Loft, but I wanted a softer yarn, so I opted for Madelinetosh Merino Light. I am using the “paper” colorway. Here’s my progress so far:


This is not a design for beginners. It is such a clever design, worked in sections with lots of short rows for shaping. Because of this, the pattern is 12 pages long. That’s the top back completed, and one top side front completed as well, I’m just starting on the other top side front. So far, I have found the pattern directions to be flawless.


Well, after we are done doing this.

  2. That cat!!

    I just finished Timberline by BT for my son. 24 page pattern! So explicit, which I appreciated, but by the end, I couldn’t stomach reading two pages of instructions for the collar!

  4. What a ham!

    I’m referring to Loki…

  5. Enjoying your progress on your sweater. Then Loki looks like he is in ecstasy! Lucky cat!

    Ah yes – the tummy/chest rubs must come first in accordance with the law.

    Cool pattern. Looks like something I’d love to tackle. M

  8. Marcy Doane says:

    I am working on Woodfords also. Such an interesting and creative pattern. I love it, except for the endless small stitches of the pattern on the bottom of the body. Right now I wish I was a size 6 instead of a size 18!

  9. don’t you just love TML? I firmly believe that it’s one of my all time favorite yarns ever created! And, the project looks lovely — as does Loki! back to the Sanquhar Cowl that you twisted my arm into making 😉 xox

  10. look forward to watching the development…12 pgs kinda reminds me of some of your patterns.
