My current work in progress:

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


Now With Less Denim

Since this alleges to be a knitting blog, a picture of my Oregon Cardigan in progress:

A couple of rounds away from starting the armhole steeks

And of course I did some sewing last week. I drafted my own pattern for this:

100% linen — not vintage

Then I returned to my antique linen — another 100+-year-old sheet.


Then a quick return to denim with this shirt:

McCall’s pattern number 6613

Followed by an easy cotton top:

Burda pattern 6972

Loki kept an eye on everything going on outside the window and kept me informed!

Sentry cat!


  1. You have been busy! Lovely stuff!

  2. I took a bereavement break from IG and other social media after my MOther died in January…thought I’d check in and see what you were up to…you’ve been BUSY! Thanks for always being so inspiring, Wendy! I may go back to blogging once my break is over…

    Loki is a one-kitty neighborhood watch!
    All of your shirts are so nice — and they’ll be so comfortable. No scratchiness there! I love the pajamas. The shirt you drafted yourself looks great! Nice job. Do I detect a new direction in your creative design pursuits??

    Wow! Wonderful creations. My cat, Scooter, is also on squirrel/crow/bluejay duty. 🙂

  6. Wow! That sweater is just gorgeous!
