My current work in progress:

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


Mary Tudor

I finished my Mary Tudor cardigan yesterday:

I purchased the kit for this from — it is knit from Alice Starmore’s 2-ply Hebridean on a 3.25mm needle.

I love the mitred corners at the bottom hem:

I found a pretty vintage button on etsy to use for this:

As you can see, Loki is exhausted from helping me with this project.

    It is absolutely beautiful. And Loki well he is a love!! Merry Christmas to you and yours

  9. So, tell us: Did you steek the top of the sleeves? Or did you weave in a lot of ends? Inquiring minds want to know …

  10. So beautiful!

  11. Gorgeous! And so is that fluffy kitty!

  12. What wonderful work. It is stunning!

  13. Susanne Scheurwater says:

    I too am anxious to know how you did the sleeve. Steek or no steek. that is the question.
    That is a stunning piece of work and you should be very proud. Hope you and the KOARC enjoy a wonderful Christmas and a safe and Happy Holiday

  14. so gorgeous! congrats
    just wondering: am I the only one looking at the Tudor roses & fleur de lis & thinking, “shouldn’t this be Margaret Tudor?”

  15. Oh my gosh, that is a stunning sweater. I can see how it might have exhausted Loki. Hopefully some cold days will arrive so you can wear it!

  16. Monica Cortada says:

    The Mary Tudor cardigan is even more beautiful than I’d imagined it would be. If only little Loki didn’t have to work so hard to help you with your projects, LOL! Happy Holidays!
