My current work in progress:

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


A Little Ragdoll

I got my yarn for my lilac point Ragdoll kitty!


This is Rowan Kidsilk Haze in the White, and Smoke colorways, to be knitted held together with Rowan Baby Merino Silk DK, in the Snowdrop, Dawn, and Rose colorways. My hope was that the Kidsilk Haze would give my kitty a bit of fluffyness.

Here is the resulting kitty:


I think he turned out nicely. I went up a needle size to a 3.25mm since I was using a strand of Kidsilk Haze together with the Baby Merino Silk DK. It worked very nicely!


Craft Festival

Check this out: Annie’s Craft Festival!

Annie’s is the company that has published many, many booklets of great knitting and crochet patterns and I have reviewed and given away a number of them. The festival is not limited to knitting and crochet, but also includes classes in Beading, Cake Decorating, Cross-Stitch & Embroidery, Floral Arranging, Painting, Paper & Card, Quilting, and Sewing categories. It is being held in Fort Wayne Indiana October 30 — November 1. Looking at the list of instructors, I can see that they have some great knitting teachers lined up, so I can only imagine that the teachers for the other crafts are likely great as well. It would be a great trip for someone who is into several of the crafts represented. All the info you need is on the festival website.

    The little KnitKitty is adorable, but let’s face it, he can’t hold a candle to your dear Loki!

  10. Maybe not as fluffy as Loki but definitely shares his coloring!
