My current work in progress:

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



I finished the front of my Freshet sweater this week, so I attached the shoulders — I did a three-needle bind-off, my favorite way to do shoulder seams — and picked up stitches and knit the turtleneck collar.

The collar was around 8″ of 2 by 2 rib and took a fair amount of time to work, but it is done! Now I am working on the first sleeve.

I plan to attach the sleeves via three-needle bind-off as well.

Meanwhile, Loki had a busy week being adorable, so he is resting up!

    That much adorable needs a lot of rest.

  2. Love the sweater, just wonderful ! Like turtle necks a lot , but they don’t like me. My neck is to short, so does not look good. That’s one of my favorite colors. Loki looks like He’s very content. Take Care ! Hope your back is behaving.

    Beautiful sweater! I love the 3-needle bind-off for shoulder seams, but I’ve never tried it for attaching sleeves. I’d love to know why and how you do it. I assume you have to pick up stitches along the body. Does it add extra bulk to the seam?

    WOW! Mind boggling!! 😯
