I’ve officially started my Project Three – a throw. You might remember that Camp Loopy’s Project Three needs to be an 800 yd. project (or more). I made another throw last summer, in a striping pattern. This time I’m going round and round to make one big square (although I jiggered it so that it is rectangular, not square.) I’m using Blue Sky Worsted Hand Dyes and I know it will be as soft and comfortable to use as last summer’s throw turned out to be (made in Rowan’s Amy Butler Belle Organic.) Someday maybe I’ll be able to do something more exciting with crochet than go round and round in lines, but for now, this is it. I do, however, love the blankets/throws when they are done.
This month we’ve been celebrating our Fifth Anniversary by sharing different exclusive colorways with you. Our first one was from The Sanguine Gryphon on their Bugga base, and this week’s was from Lorna’s Laces on their Solemate base. (We have a few skeins left, if you missed it.) We’ll have one more for you in next Monday’s Update.
In the meantime, we wanted to share our anniversary blog contest with you. We will be randomly drawing five winners from all of today’s blog comments and each winner will receive a $50 Loopy Ewe Gift Certificate! To enter, just answer this question in the comments below (or email us the answer, if you’re shy …). We’ll draw the winners at the end of next week. So here is the question to answer:
What is your favorite vegetable?
You thought we were going to make you say “Happy Anniversary”, right? Or “Tell us your favorite thing about the shop”? Or “How long have you been hanging out with us at The Loopy Ewe”? Nope. We want to know your favorite vegetable. We don’t always like to be predictable.
