Today is the day!** Day One of Project One for Camp Loopy. Are you camping with us? Remember, it’s a bug-free, travel-free opportunity to participate in some fun this summer. You can knit up one project with us, or do all three. The Project One information can be found here, and answers to your questions can be found here. We’ll have information on Project Two in the July 1st blog. It has been fun to see all of the wonderful color combinations shipping out of here for the first project.
I have been eyeing the Pamuya Shawl since I saw it in person (on several people) at our Spring Fling. Since it uses about 575 yds, it’s definitely a two-skein project and perfect for doing up in two colors. I picked these two Madelinetosh Merino Light colors this week – shown here in Celadon and Mansfield Garden Party. Two color projects are fun. These two skeins alllllmost don’t go together. The Mansfield has more olive greens mixed in. However, it also contains a version of blue that combines just right with the Celadon and I think it will turn out great. But … we’ll see. I’m just going to jump in and do it. I haven’t started it yet, but I did bring it to Loopy with me today, in case I can squeeze in a few stitches at lunch. (The fact that this project needs to be done in 4 weeks and I’m moving in 4 1/2 weeks and need to pack up the whole house? I’m ignoring that.)
We have winners from last week’s Camp Contest! The following people won a copy of the Winter Rhythm Capelet pattern that I knit up and featured on last Wednesday’s blog: Sherry from AK, Pat from OH, Debbie from TN, Linda from New Brunswick, and Sue from WY. All winners have been contacted. We’ll have another Camp Contest soon.
The Project One Photo Gallery will be going up at The Loopy Ewe, sometime next week. Will anyone be done the first week? I know there were a bunch of you who were starting at 12:01 this morning. Maybe you’re done already. Me? It’s going to take me the whole month.
** no turtles were harmed in the photography process. (Harmed? Are you kidding? The little guy said, “WHEEEE!!” the whole way across the room …..)
