The Loopy Ewe has created a virtual Summer Camp. A fun and brilliant idea. There will be a total of three projects, one per each month of camp. Camp starts June 15th and ends Sept. 15th. Campers who finish each project and post a picture in the Loopy Ewe Gallery will receive a camp kit. There are various cabins and a Loopy Hotel for the campers to stay in and share their camp experiences. I checked into the Loopy Hotel.
Camp assignments so far:
Project #1 Campfire Nights
specifics for your first project:
- knit between June 15 and July 15
- a two-color project in either a cape, a shawl, or a scarf. (Things that would keep you warm, when sitting around the campfire in the cool of the night. See ideas and links below.)
Project #2 Hiking in the Mountains
– will run from July 15 – August 15
- for this project, the challenge is to knit or crochet either a pair of socks or a pair of mittens or a pair of gloves, in an adult size. (No fingerless mitts this time around.) The other part of the challenge is that the pattern you use needs to contain cables, which are always fun to do!
Project #1 I knit the Morlynn Shawl in Fiber Optics Footnotes yarn. Colorways are Garnet and Espresso. This is a very quick knit and I love the details. I used all of the Espresso but there was a few yards of Garnet left.
I have chosen the Owlie Sock pattern for Project #2. I ordered Skinny Bugga in Bog Fritillary for these socks.
