My current work in progress:

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


HANA Completed

I finished my HANA pullover earlier this week. And I really like it!

This photo doesn’t really show it, but it is wide enough that I could invite a couple of friends in it with me.

I knit this from a cotton blend yarn, Nako Denim, that I had purchased from Webs earlier in the year. (I used stash yarn: SCORE!) I would have enjoyed the knitting more if I had knit it in wool, but knew it would be way too warm for me to ever wear if I did so.

Giant sweater!

I then immediately cast on a project with this:

MadelineTosh Pashmina in “The Feels” colorway.

This skein was a retirement gift from my now former co-worker Bob. Fun fact: I taught Bob to knit over ten years ago and MadTosh Pashmina is his favorite yarn. He has excellent taste!

I made this:

Hello. I am unblocked.

This is Melanie Berg’s Calligraphy Hat, a perfect pattern for this yarn.

And here is a preview of coming attractions:

I am a sleeve. Check out my tubular cast-on!

And Loki is enjoying being retired!

I am available for tummy rubs. Thank you.


  1. Lovely! All of it.

    Lucky Loki! Skritches to you.

    Absolutely gorgeous!

    Gorgeous! I love the baby blue color. Bet it looks good on you.
    Your Loki must love tummy rubs as much as my Chicorgi, Clover. She’ll lean so far over to expose her tummy that she almost falls off the bed. πŸ˜‰

  4. I love our Hana – and I love seeing it ON! Don’t you love tubular cast on? I actually don’t love to do it, but I always find the results so pleasing.

  5. I love your Hana pullover! It’s beautiful and I think I need to make one.

    Congratulations on your retirement! I wish you all the best!

  6. Gorgeous MadTosh yarn!!!🀩🀩 And Im sure that hat & top will be warm! Belly rubs & kisses to handsome Loki πŸΎπŸ’•
