My current work in progress:

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


Sleeves: Check.

My “preview of coming attractions” from last week’s post is the start of Saven, a design by Meghan Babin.

The pattern has you knit the sleeves first, so I did just that.

One of these things is not like the other

You may or may not have noticed immediately that one sleeve has several mis-crossed cables. (Or is the photo too small?) I only noticed them when I was beyond that point and did not feel it necessary to go back and correct. I posted a photo of that sleeve on Instagram because I was curious: would people notice the errors immediately or not? The answer is: some did, some did not, some noticed after scrutinizing the photo for a bit.

The sleeve on the left has all cables properly crossed. But honesty compels me to admit that I mis-crossed two cables. For some reason that is a real mental block for me. I don’t follow the chart because the pattern is pretty easy, and I get in a zone and don’t pay attention.

I did not, however, rip back. I duplicate-stitched over the two mis-crossed cables.

In other news, Loki is still enjoying retirement!

I sit in Momma’s lap whenever I want to!
