My current work in progress:

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


Nearly There!

First of all, the winner of my review copy of  Unexpected Cables: Feminine Knitted Garments Featuring Modern Cable Knitting bHeather Zoppetti is Ruth, who has been emailed. Thank you to everyone who left a comment!

My Crazed Scandinavian Cowl is in the home stretch!


Here are a couple of close-ups:


And the other end:


I have worked 532 0f 604 rows of this baby, so it will be finished this week! The pattern will be available within a couple of weeks, I think. I will be sure to let you know when it is ready.

Loki is pleased that he got such a positive response to his last toe floof photo so is sharing another one:



  1. More floof! My kitties are floofless, alas.

  2. Shirley Gallagher says:

    Your cowl is amazing. Also amazing is Loki, he looks so plush and sweet, I want to wrap him in my arms.

  3. More toe floof! Love it! One of my seven babies is blessed with floof, the others not so blessed.Looking forward to the cowl pattern.

  4. Sophy0075 says:

    Tabitha and Faith have bare toe beans too. They envy Loki.

    I love your cowl.

  5. Bare toe beans! Yes, my furbabies have the pink jelly bean toes, Miss Hinky has a modest (ladylike) bit of toe floof. Wah! I did not win the book. But hey look: Interweave is having a flash sale and has reduded this book to $18.99! Just gotta find the credit card….

  6. Kristine M. says:

    Such a handsome kitty, he is!

  7. I’m with Shirley, I just want to pick Loki up and feel his soft fur! He’s a very attractive cat!
    Looking forward to the cowl pattern – it looks amazing.

  8. It is beautiful Wendy. LOL Loki loves to pose doesn’t he?

  9. He’s all floof!

  10. Questions:
    1. Do you have software that you use to plot your rows
    2. How long did plotting 600 rows take you
    3. How long will this cowl be at the end & when you join the ends will you twist it once?
    Knitters need to know . . .
    It’s so unique and beautiful!

  11. An amazing piece. You know, if you could get a super photo of the cowl before the ends are connected, or a giant scan of it (architectural office?), you could probably sell it as a poster.
