My current work in progress:

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


If At First You Don’t Fricassee

Fry, fry a hen.

I really do want a cocoon style sweater, so I started another one: the Veronika Cardigan designed by Shannon Cook. I’m using the suggested yarn, YOTH Daughter, because I’d not used it before and wanted to try it out. I am using the Black Truffle colorway. My progress so far:

I am getting exact stitch and row gauge with the suggested needle, a U.S. size 8. This is an easy knit, so it’s good for mindless knitting while watching tv or socializing, Knitting with black yarn in the evening can be a challenge, but since the pattern is easy, that’s not a big issue.

In other news, Vroni and Clara had a slumber party the other night.

And in Loki’s world, he has a slumber party all day, every day.

  2. You make the cutest clothes for those girls! I can’t wait for your comments on the Veronika Cardigan. I would love to make a cocoon style sweater! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Oh my the dolls are so cute, Loki is so cute, everything is adorable.

    Your work is beyond amazing, Wendy!

  5. There is something that suspiciously resembles cat fur on the sweater. The doll jammies are adorable, and those bunny slippers!

    Cool pattern, Wendy. I knit Shannon’s Timber last winter and it was a joy.

    Awwww, “Caddie Woodlawn” reference…

  8. I looked at that cardigan on Ravelry and it’s beautiful! 🙂 Can’t wait to see your version.

  9. OK, where’d you get the bunny slippers? (Did you make them?!) Cute jammies, BTW. Also, I am constantly amazed at the positions in which Loki sleeps – it seems impossible! That looks to be a very wearable cardigan, and elegant. As usual, Wendy. 🙂
