My current work in progress:

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



It’s July 1 and that means one thing:

July Camp Loopy project time! I am knitting Casapinka’s Goldfish Memory Shawl out of Hedgehog Fibres Sock:

The three colorways are Nutmeg, Guppy, and Copper Penny.

The shawl consists of a lot of different stitches and textures in different sections. Here is the first section:

In other news, I got my copy of the newest Mason-Dixon Knitting Field Guide yesterday.

Check it out — some cute patterns there! I love the Sail-Awat Shawl, and the cute Bodhi Leaf Washcloth looks like something I’ll need to knit multiple times. I’ve got lots of leftover Euroflax linen that will be perfect for it.

In other news, Loki still has impressive toe floof!

    Great colors for Goldfish memories. I started that pattern last year but it was too fiddly for me at the time. It’s in timeout! I need to rethink my colors, they didn’t work well with the pattern.

  2. Happy July!

    Those colorways are perfect for fall. And for pawfloof.

    I checked that shawl out and those colors in that pattern……well all I can say is this is going to be exciting to watch that shawl come together !!!!

    I love your color choices. I have that shawl in my queue.
    My kitty, Horus, (black & white w/ white paws fortunately!) also has plenty of toe floof too! We call them yeti paws.

  5. In our house we call those Grinch Feet, a term we first heard from a vet tech.
