  • We are lucky to share in the joy of your serendipity! Thanks!

  • So incredibly beautiful!!

  • Just lovely! Thank you!

  • Oh my gosh! What a beautiful outfit and awesome pictures. ❤️

  • I can’t quit pull this style off with my fat oh I meant body type. Lol
    But my daughter inlaw has one in her future.

  • Love it!

  • Huge fan of Kate’s work (written & knitted) here!

  • So good. And such a lovely message with which to start the day. Any day, really. Thank you Ms. Davies. By the way, my husband is a Barr.

  • Your sweater, skirt, and surroundings completely match my own fantasy of a winter wonderland. Well done!

  • Isn’t wonderful when things just happen 🙂 They’renthe best! Now I must knit this sweater.

  • When I first saw Kate/Tom’s photo of Carbeth on that sunny winter white lake with swan! I used it for a few days as my home page screen shot. Just to brighten a dreary gray Oregon day. A cheery Carbeth was on my needles that next day. I WILL make another!

    • It’s still the wallpaper on my iPad. The photo was THAT spectacular! Great work Kate & Tom!

  • This is still so exquisite, every time I look at it! I’m glad that the sweater was so easy and pleasant to plan and knit, too!

  • This is such a wonderful story of your wonderful short sweet cozy sweater … I cannot wait to finish mine

  • This story is amazing! I love it.

  • Would love to bang out a Carbeth but must face reality: a sweater of that length would look positively dumpy on my short-waisted, high-hipped Size 14 body. (It’s marvelous in the photos, on a narrow-bottomed body.) But I do love the top shaping. Has anyone successfully lengthened this to cover the waist and end at mid-hip?

  • Thank you for sharing your serendipity of a design. I also love that skirt—the colors are such an unusual combination—I want to knit a Carbeth marled with them. (After I finish my first one…)

  • Was I dreaming when I saw a photo of this beautiful sweater knit in Brushwork, held double? I happen to have a lovely pile of Brushwork and want to do the same, but I would like to read the show notes from the person who went first. Can anyone help?

  • I am new to MDK and read the blogs/newsletters first thing every morning. I really want to knit the Carbeth but have not yet found the perfect yarn for me. Loved your story Kate and was imagining your walk on that perfect winter day. Thanks for sharing
