My current work in progress:

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


Denim Fun

I’m working along on my Newlyn Jacket. I finished the back on Friday.

It is extra long because once completed and washed it will shrink 10% or so.

I am currently knitting along on the left front:

I did the pocket finishing because I didn’t like leaving the stitches on a holder and letting the hole gape open while I knit. After working across the entire back, it is a relief to be knitting a side front, where to rows go much quicker!

The yarn, Rowan Original Denim is, as you may well know, rope-dyed indigo so that the sweater will fade like a pair of jeans every time it is washed. It also means that some dye comes off during knitting, but it is not too bad since it is a lighter colorway to begin with.

And as usual, my little supervisor is on the job!

Don’t get any indigo dye on my fur, please!
