My current work in progress:

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



I finished my Kallara Shawl Friday night.


Kallara, is a pattern by Ambah O’Brien. I used Shalimar Yarns Enzo Sport in the “Bees Knees” and “Sand Dollar” colorways (2 skeins of each color) on a U.S. size 6 needle. I worked some extra rows since I had more yarn than the pattern called for.


My completed shawl is approximately 106″ along the long edge and 23″ deep at the deepest point.


This will be a lovely addition to my winter wardrobe but I can’t even think about trying it on now. It was 101 degrees yesterday. So I have folded it up and put it away. For now.


Loki sez “If you didn’t want me to walk on it, why did you put it on the floor?”

    What soothing colors in your beautiful shawl! Almost cooling. I wish this Summer From Heck would end. With his long fur, Loki would probably agree.
