My current work in progress:

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



Thank you for all your very kind comments about my Mary Tudor cardi. In answer to a couple of questions in the comments, I did indeed steek the sleeve caps.

So of course I cast on something new.

This is the beginning of Yell, a design from Marie Wallin from her pattern collection entitled Shetland. It is knit on a size 3.25mm needle with Jamieson’s of Shetland Shetland Spindrift. I’m making a few mods.

I’ve added a facing at the bottom to combat the curling that several Ravelers mentioned in their project notes for this design.

The pattern directs you do do a 5-stitch steek, which in my experience is way too narrow, so I’ve done my usual 10-stitch steek.

I plan also to make my cardi longer than the original design.

While I’ve been knitting, Loki has been “supervising.”

    After just finishing the Maidenhair shawl I’d vowed to knit only socks for about a year but, man! I’m jonesin’ for Yell … I love the silhouette, the colors, and the pattern. Thank you for your detailed notes, Wendy.

    The Mary Tudor is gorgeous, and I think that the Marie Wallin Shetland is going to be even more beautiful! ❤️🧶. But none is more beautiful than sweet little Loki! ❤️🐾😊

  4. Beautiful! It’s called Yell….because that’s what you will do if you realize you made a glaring mistake 30 rows back.

    I cast on a hat on Jan 1st. I decided my New Year’s resolution will be to cast on a new project every 1st of the month. That’ll be an easy resolution to keep.
