My current work in progress:

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


Ottar Hap

I finished my Ottar Hap at the end of last week.

It was a very enjoyable knit, nothing difficult about it, so great to work on while watching television.

I purchased the yarn as a kit from Kate Davies Designs. I only did 5 sets of stripes instead of 6 because I ran out of the white yarn.

I had 20 grams of green left over, so I think my skein of white had to have been underweight, as I used the same amount of green and white. I’m not overly concerned because the shawl easily blocked out to size (just steam blocking it) with 5 sets of stripes instead of 6.

Now I need to tuck it away until next winter.

I am currently working on my Camp Loopy July project. Here are the accent colors being used:

More next time!

Loki is working on a nap here:


  1. It turned out beautiful, I love the green and grey 😀 Looking forward to seeing your July project!

  2. Your Hap is lovely. Great color combination! Can’t wait to see what you are going to do with the Camp Loopy project. Loki is napping restfully. He is precious.

  3. Very nice. Old shale is one of my favorite patterns, pleasing to the eye and relaxing to knit. I’ve always called it feather and fan, but apparently they are two different patterns and people can get worked up if you use the wrong term!

  4. Is that lump under the first hap picture Loki? Beautiful shawl.
