My current work in progress:

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



That is the number of thistles I have knit as I’m working on the Margaret Tudor sweater. I have all the thistle panels complete.

Sleeve One:

Sleeve Two:



As you see on the back pieces, I have completed one of the lace panels. I’m working on the second of six lace panels now:

And Loki is standing by in case I need him!


  1. THAT SWEATER IS QUITE INTERESTING .Will be great to see it together.Is Loki half in and half out of a waste basket? Never a dull moment . He looks so content!! xo

  3. And I thought the number was 42.

  4. What a beautiful knit. A job well done!

  5. 46. I counted them! Can’t wait to see it assembled!
    I see the Hinza tote is still a Loki magnet!

  6. I’m a fairly new knitter and am curious why the designer created the sweater in so many pieces? What is gained by knitting a sweater in parts and seaming them together, rather than knitting them in the more standard front, back and sleeves pieces.

    Such a gorgeous piece of wooly architecture, Wendy! I can tell you’re having fun knitting it!

  8. That is absolutely stunning!! I admire you so much for tackling such detailed work.
    You do beautiful work, I so wish I could do that. I don’t have the patience nor the
    fortitude to tackle something like that. (Maybe 20-30 years ago)
    I love your emails, you’re so accomplished and such a joy to follow….and Loki is
    such a doll….always the final smile!!

    Have a great Thanksgiving, Lauren in Michigan
