My current work in progress:

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


Freshet Pullover

It’s done — finished Friday night!

To recap, this is the Freshet Pullover by Irina Anikeeva from Brooklyn Tweed Wool People Voliume 13. I knit mine from Rowan Softyak DK.

This was a thoroughly enjoyable knit. My only mods were to shape the shoulders with short rows and to a three-needle bind-off. I also attached the sleeves via three-needle bind-off.

I really like attached drop shoulder sleeves this way. It makes a nice firm, and more importantly neat, seam!

Now I’m starting something that is extremely labor-intensive.

Loki wonders “what could it be?”


  1. Beautiful!!!

  2. Dorothy in Kentucky says:

    So beautiful!! And Loki is adorable

  3. Lovely, though right now I’m so warm, just looking at it is making me sweat.

  4. Beautiful sweater and work. BUT, I don’t remember seeing Loki so awake and alert and his beautiful eyes open.

  5. Suzanne CS says:

    This really looks like a Rowan design from the late 90s. I like that.

  6. What a gorgeous sweater!

  7. I love how you say you’re starting something “extremely labor-intensive” after just finishing an allover cables sweater. You are my knitting inspiration, with how fast you finish such complicated projects. And everything is so beautiful <3

  8. Eugenia Potter says:

    Amazing sweater and beautiful work!

  9. Soxy Jane says:

    Beautiful sweater – I’m a sucker for cables.

    I hope your new project isn’t so labor intensive that Loki get neglected 😉

  10. Another beautiful job done. Can’t wait to see what’s going on the needles next. Love the photo of Loki. He’s so expressive. What size needles did you knit your sweater with? Take care, I hope your felling alright!

  11. I know what you started!
    I’m swatching for it myself. I have had the Scottish Fleet stashed since the pattern was published, and am excited to have this sweater in my closet. Can’t wait to see your notes.
