My current work in progress:

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


Double Fun

Upon completion of my June Camp Loopy project, I pulled out a kit I had purchased a while back: Double Basketweave Cowl.

The pattern is a freebie by Karen Templar of Fringe Association. I purchased the kit from Fringe Association. It consists of 2 skeins of Sincere Sheep Luminous DK, a wool/silk blend. The yarn is held double and the pattern calls for a U.S. size 10.5, but I knit mine with a U.S. size 9 (5.5mm) needle.

The yarn is wonderfully soft and squishy, and this cowl will be a welcome addition to my winter wardrobe. right now it’s har to think about it being cold enough to warrant such a warm cozy cowl.

But I’m working on another cowl.

Loki is helping.

    Beautiful! Both cowls make me want to reach into the picture and squish them. For some reason the texture of the first and colors of the second make me think of gorgeous handmade wool carpets. 😀

  2. Both cowel’s make me wish I as still living back in Washington state. You inspire me so much with all your knitting projects! Thank you so much!

    Glad Loki is helping!

    What yarn is that in the red cowl? It is beautiful and the white cowl is one I might even try to knit.
