My current work in progress:

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


Roscalie Cardigan

I finished this on Monday.

Alice Starmore’s Roscalie Cardigan, from her book In the Hebrides. I used Jamieson’s Shetland Spindrift. This is a relatively easy fair isle as it uses only 5 colors.

Loki spent the Thanksgiving holiday doing this:

And I did this:


  1. Beautiful (cat! – also the sweater). Even the inside of the back looks fabulous. And clearly you haven’t had enough fair isle.

    Thank you for post and I love your books. I am hoping to get a ragdoll in Jan. Your knitting give me a lot of pleasure. I had a stroke in Sept so my typing is not very good.
