On the Needles–Friday the 13th

When I woke up this morning this was on my needles…


I have since bound it off the needles…..I need to block and photograph it over the weekend.  I’m so happy to have finished my Camp Loopy Project #2, a Stripe Study Shawl in Dragonfly Djinni Sock Yarn Water Sprite & Poseidon Colorways.

Over the last few weeks I have been knitting away on my Loopy London 2012 Swap projects and also making some other super secret items.  I haven’t been able to show off the progress because the swap box items needed to be a surprise for Cher.  Now that she has received her box I can post pictures here on my blog Smile

The main project was my first attempt at colorwork.  These are Cat Mittens.  The yarn is Loopy Ewe Solid Series in Butter & Caribbean.


I also decided that I needed to include a project with a little cashmere, so I knit up this Hermione Hearts Ron hat using The Sanguine Gryphon Bugga! yarn in Gardenia Hawk Bee colorway.  It’s oh so soft!


I also fired up the embroidery machine for a custom tumbler and project bag.  Cher was in the Blue Canoe group during project #1 & the Dragonflies group during project #2 so I included both of these into the Camp Loopy bag.


While I’m waiting for the Ravellenic Games to start I’m going to join into the Westknits Mystery Shawl KAL.  I chose 2 fun bright yarns from Propaganda Yarns after the pink/yellow yarn was posted.  Looking forward to casting this one on so I have something other than the sock blankie to work on at Margarita Night with my knitting pals on Wednesday night Smile

Great knitting Beth - those mittens are wonderful, and your hat is gorgeous. Love your yarn choices for the KAL - can't wait to see how it turns out.
