Camp Loopy and SSK 2014

Time for an update.  I somehow moved my works in progress and stashing over to You Tube.  I know right, not my style at all.  I have really gotten into cross stitching and there is a wonderful community of stitchers on You Tube.  It has replaced Ravelry as my go to place to hang out with other crafters.  I am still on Plurk daily and I check in on Instagram when I remember to turn on my phone.   So lets start with the knitting.

Camp Loopy Project #1
Traveling Woman Shawl in Trekking XXL

Camp Loopy Project #2 Boneyard Shawl in Cascade Ultra Pima in Ginseng
For the third and final Camp Loopy 2014 Project I am going to knit a sweater in Cascade 220 Como Blue. I originally chose the Harvest Cardigan from TinCanKnits. However, I saw a sweater in the try-it-on room at SSK that I would really like to knit as well, the Modular Angle Cardigan. Tomorrow is cast on day so I need to make up my mind tonight.

Speaking of SSK, it was fantastic again this year. Lots of new friends were made. I actually got some knitting done this year. I also had an opportunity to work the vendor market. I lent a hand to Sadie of Knitter's Knightmare. I really enjoyed it. My roommate this year was Amy Beth of the Fat Squirrel Speaks. I got to spend some quality time with some of my favorite people in the world.
