My current work in progress:

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


The End Is In Sight

I made some good progress on my cardi over the long weekend. I have the body done, and am working on the first sleeve.

Here is a bottom front corner (unblocked):


And here is the (unblocked) neckband:


Here is the first sleeve in progress:


And here is Loki being a big help:


“I’m holding it down for you, Momma!”

In other news, I knit a wee catnip mouse:


This is a gift for a Turkish Angora kitten who is going to her forever home in a couple of weeks.


  1. The color is so pretty! Can’t wait to see it

  2. Really like the sweater – you’ve made such inspiring progress!! Can you share the pattern for the catnip mouse? Is it difficult to do? I would like to try. Thanks for considering it!

    Love the sweater – just simple. Sending my prayers with the mouse for Turkish Kitty. M

  4. Amy Schulze says:

    The increases look interesting. Not your typical top down raglan. Like the neck edge too. I think I may favorite the pattern for future reference.

  5. The cardigan is really shaping up nicely. And the catnip mouse is adorable! I’m sure the little kitty will love it:O))

  6. Denise Wessman says:

    I thought I was the only one that knit for kitties. Love the mouse as much as the sweater. Can’t wait to see it done.

  7. I love your golden color. Good progress. Hi Loki.

  10. Loki is such a big help.
