My current work in progress:

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



I finished Newsom on Thursday.

Here’s the back:

The only mod I did was to do an i-cord cast-off on the front bands/collar, and to pick up and work a few garter stitch rows along the bottom edge, and do an i-cord bind-off there as well.

I made this from Shalimar Enzo Sport in the Thistle colorway and used the suggested needles: a U.S. 3 and 5.

That’s my August Camp Loopy project done. So I now return to my regularly scheduled knitting. I was working on a Comfort Fade Cardi that I set aside to make my Camp Loopy project. I returned to it last week:

I have the body and the huge shawl collar done, and have started the first sleeve. The pattern directs you to work the sleeves before the collar, but I wanted to get that huge expanse of shawl collar knitting done before working the relatively quick sleeves. I expect to have this completed within a week or two.

Meanwhile, Loki strikes a pose:

    Your Newsom cardigan is beautiful! I like the i-cord finish. And Loki is adorable as always.

  7. gorgeous! as usual
    your prodigious output sets me wondering how you store your beauties: cedar balls, or are you blessed with cedar chests or ! a cedar closet !!! or some newer, smarter approach?
    Thanks for another lovely post. j

    It’s so pretty, and with such tiny stitches!! Loki is handsome as always.

  9. Ooh! I love your version. I’d seen the pattern on Ravelry and wasn’t all that impressed but after seeing yours, I’ve added it to my queue.
