My current work in progress:

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


Lambswool, Baby!

For my next trick . . .

This design is called Linsey, a pattern I purchased from Jamieson & Smith Shetland Woolbrokers. (That link to takes you to a page for a kit to knit this design, currently out of stock. You can purchase the single pattern via Ravely.) It calls for 4 undyed shades of jumperweight shetland wool.

I had an idea.

I love Elsawool Cormo so much, I decided to knit mine from 4 shades of Cormo fingering weight. And I took it one step further — I purchased Elsawool Cormo Lambswool. Scroll to the bottom of the page to see the lambie choices.

Even the corrugated ribbing was fun to knit!

Am I happy with my decision to use this yarn? Heck, yeah! It is gorgeous, consistently spun, I have yet to see a knot in any of the skeins, and it is soft and bouncy.

Speaking of soft and bouncy . . .

Play with me, Momma!
