My current work in progress:

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



The FrankenScarf is growing!

This photo depicts halfway through Day Seven. For each day there is a deep stripe of Opal and a skinny stripe of Koigu.

I am now at the point where I am obsessing over my ability to keep up and finish up each day’s yarn in a timely fashion.

I do think it looks like a fun scarf. This led me to imagine how fun it would be knit with this:


This is a complete set of Mason-Dixon Knitting Euroflax Linen mini-skeins. This is available for sale in four sets of fiveĀ skeins in different colors (Earth, Forest, Fire, and Sea). I was lucky enough to grab a “mega-bundle” of all four sets when MDK was offering it for sale recently. I note that the mega-bundle is currently out of stock.

Wouldn’t this complete set make an awesome striped FrankenScarf? Think about it!

That’s probably exactly what Loki is contemplating.



  1. Agree, FrankenScarf is fun! And in all those linen colors, whooo-hoo, that would be fabulous, too.

  2. So pretty! It is one of those scarves that people always ask about when you wear it.

    “Franken scarf, you say? Who made it?”

    “Abby someone.” šŸ˜‰

  3. Echoing those above: Great fun to see yours grow, and equally fun to imagiknit something similar in the MDK Euroflax!

    Love the scarf! I reminds me of millefiore or marbled paper. I have lots of Koigu that I bought to knit a vest of little muttered squares. Unfortunately I discovered that I didn’t enjoy that type of knitting. So perhaps I’ll knit a similar scarf.
