My current work in progress:

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



Next up:

Kenmare, designed by Martin Storey, knit from Rowan SoftKnit Cotton, another great yarn sadly discontinued by Rowan. It appears that I will be spending the summer knitting with discontinued Rowan yarns. But I’m not bitter . . .

I am using the “Aged Rose” colorway, which coincidentally is the color used to knit the sample.

I have the back done.

And the front will be done today or tomorrow.

It’s a fun and easy pattern, very easy to memorize. It’s patterned with traditional gansey motifs and I am a sucker for a traditional gansey, so I am enjoying every minute of this.

    “a fun and easy pattern, very easy to memorize” – Hah. For you! So, so pretty, Wendy. I will love to see you model this not-green sweater! 😀

  6. I really like this sweater and surprisingly my son, who is very picky, does too.
    So I am going to knit this for him. It looks like most people (on Ravelry) have knit this with
    cotton/wool yarn or straight cotton. Do you think that’s necessary or would a wool do just as well?

    Such a stunning colour!! And a delightful Loki
