My current work in progress:

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

Finished, actually, last weekend:

As I mentioned in my last post, I used charts from a design from an old book (Traditional Knitting from the Scottish and Irish Isles, edited by Debbie Bliss) to create this sweater. The original is a sleeveless v-neck vest designed by Lesley Stanfield. I used both Jamieson & Smith and Jamiesons of Shetland yarn as I couldn’t find all the colors in one or the other brand.

I’m very pleased with how it turned out — I managed to get the sleeves looing like they match the body.

Next up . . . a non-fairisle project!

And Loki is having a busy day.
