My current work in progress:

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


Clearing Things Up

Lately when I post photos of my socks on blockers, some of you think that the end of the blocker peeping out from the top of the sock is a knitted on edging.


Nope! It’s my pretty red sock blocker, purchased at The Loopy Ewe.



Lucy and Wildlife

And a couple of you commented wondering how Lucy slept through the brief encounter with the squirrel. Lucy was a good seven miles away from the squirrel!

I live on the 10th floor of a highrise condo. Lucy is an indoor-only kitty. It would be a very intrepid squirrel indeed that managed to show itself to Lucy! We do get birds landing on the windowsills from time to time. I have a large window in the living room:


Here’s the view from that window:


Lucy does go nutsy-cuckoo when a bird lands on the windowsill!

And she does sleep a lot:


She is particularly tired today because she spent a good part of last night waking me up to play with her.

New Sock

Here is the sock I just finished:


I did not put it on a blocker to avoid confusion. 😉

Here’s a side view:


The yarn is ShibuiKnits Sock in “periwinkle.”


The KnitNation website for the event in London next July has today been updated with the class choices. Check it out! I believe that registration opens on December 1.
