My current work in progress:

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


Front Done

I finished the left side front of my Beadwork Cardi on Friday. Here are both side fronts:

I am pleased to report that they match. 🙂

I am now working on a sleeve:

The sleeves are far less labor-intensive than the body of the cardi because there is none of the complicated twisty stitch pattern. This cardi features a saddle shoulder, so that small center cable will extend up along the shoulder after binding off the stitches on either side. I’m thinking I will not bind off the sleeve stitches, but rather pick up stitches along the front and back sides and attach via three-needle bind-off. It will make for a much neater seam.

While I knit, Loki is relaxing on the floor, watching a tiger on Animal

I love his little grey ears!

    Sorry for the errors in my comment above, the site changed my wording ☹️ and wouldn’t permit me to correct it—-“YOUR BEADWORK CARDI…”

  4. The fronts look so perfect. The sleeves look pretty labor intensive to me. Just wonderful!!! You seem to have a lot of patience. Just want to hug that little guy. How old is Loki? Take care!

  5. Wow! That sweater is a true work of art!

    I love that Loki is watching tigers on tv. 🙂

  6. Absolutely gorgeous, Wendy.

  7. Just beautiful knitting. I wish I had the patience to knit such a beauty.

  8. That is going to be so impressive. I wish I had the patience and intestinal fortitude to take on such a project. I mostly knit hats . . .

  9. The cardi is gorgeous, Wendy. Loki, too!
