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
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
