My current work in progress:

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


Tettegouche Set

I finished my Tettegouche Hat early last week:

As I mentioned in my last blog post, this is Tettegouche by Virginia Sattler-Reimer, a design from Milarrochy Heids. I used a natural colored Koigu KPM as the background color, and a Koigu KPPPM “Pencil Box Set” as the foreground color.

And I made the matching Tettegouche Mittens, with a twist:

I made them into fingerless mitts.

I knit these at a tighter gauge than the hat — the hat gauge was achieved with a U.S. 4 (3.5mm) needle. I used a U.S. 2 (2.75mm) for the mitts.

I started another design from Milarrochy Heids, this one using the Kate Davies Millarrochy Tweed yarn in the colors suggested in the pattern. Can you guess which hat this is?

Loki seems not to care.

  3. I think Chezzetcook as well. I am trying to decide which one I ought to knit first once I get through the final Christmas knitting stretch (which includes four birthdays, just to make things extra interesting)

    Oh Wendy, the hat and mittens re so beautiful—you are sooo talented! As for Loki: “Loki was nestled all snug in his bed while visions of cat treats danced in his head.” Lol!

  5. Oh my! I LOVE those mitts!! The hat is great too but there’s something special about those mitts.

    Merry Christmas!
