My current work in progress:

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


Hearten, Completed

I finished my Hearten project last weekend.

It actually took a fair amount more yarn than the project called for — by well over 100 yards. And I made the sleeves a bit shorter than the pattern directs.

I also left off the eyelet edging on the sleeve cuffs as I did not like the look of it. I’m very pleased with the results — it’s a very cute, nicely designed sweater!

And Loki is just as pleased — can’t you tell?


  1. Gorgeous!

  3. Very cute! But that seems like a lot of yardage to be off by.

  4. Gorgeous! An amazing sweater ~
