My current work in progress:

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


September Finally

Welcome, September!

As you can see, Dottie and Inga are all set with their back-to-school dresses.


Dottie’s dress has a Royal Stewart tartan skirt and Inga’s is Black Watch. Or some approximation of both. I made the dresses based on Julie Williams’ Seasonal Dresses patterns and the mods were made by loosely following Suzymarie’s mods on her Ravelry project page for her “Mad About Plaid” dress. I did the vertical stripes in my bunny dresses in duplicate stitch instead of crocheting them, though. I am better at duplicate stitch than crochet! Both dresses are knit from Loopy Ewe Solid Series yarn.

In other news, I am on the hood portion of my Alodia Hooded Scarf, and so far, so good!


Because Alodia is a bit large to be schlepping to and from work, I got a start on my next project:


So far, just some tubular rib. But this is minimally processed natural grey Cormo, so it is very exciting to me! I purchased the Cormo worsted weight wool from this Etsy seller. Don’t bother looking for more, because I bought all she had. 😉

But she will no doubt have more in the future and if I don’t beat you to it, you might have a chance at buying some.

Loki sez:


“Does this light make my butt look big?”


  1. That cat is glorious!

  2. Love the dresses!!

  3. Loki,
    Not at all, you look totally regal! 😀

  4. Dottie and Inga look adorable! Hope they have a great school year;O)) Loki – you look handsome, no big butt!

  5. Love the little bunny dresses

  6. Denise Wessman says:

    Loki, you are fluffy in all the right places. Love the dresses. I might have to knit these bunny babies after all. It’s really about the outfits! Love the outfits.

  7. Christiane says:

    The bunnies will have a great school year and Loki – your butt is not big, you tail is fluffy

  8. Midnite Baker says:

    I’m drooling over your cormo, just gorgeous. My favorite of all yarns is natural. Will be interesting to see what you make. Now, me, I can crochet better than duplicate stitch. Love Dottie and Inga’s dresses. Looks like Loki wants to be left alone. Long weekend coming up, have fun. M

  9. Lestersmama says:

    My Lester died in February. He was 14 and had a very good life. I still miss him and am not ready to have another cat. Your updates on Loki give me a much needed kitty – fix. He is a lovely boy. Thanks for sharing him with us.

  10. Good grief, must..resist..teh..bunnies! Too darn cute, especially in plaid. I’m always amazed at the variety of natural colors of yarn; I will be keen to see what your Cormo becomes. Loki says he’s not fat, he’s fluffy — I know because that’s what Miss Hinky
    Boo has told me for the last 15 years.
    @ Lestersmama: Condolences for your loss. As Lester had such a good life, I’m sure he’d be totally cool with you providing the same for another kitteh, when you’re ready. God Bless!

  11. Your dresses are adorable! Love your versions of traditional plaids. Looks like the duplicate stitch worked perfectly.

  12. No, Loki, it makes you look like a canary. Or maybe I think that because I just finished listening to The Goldfinch (by Donna Tartt)?

    Adorable bunnies!

  13. The bunny sisters look great! Yes, Loki. That light does make your butt look big, but if I had an adorable, fluffy butt like that I would seriously work it. Plus, you’re a guy. Since when do guys care if their butts are big?? Haha
