I am back at Camp Loopy with my third camp project, started in the wee hours of yesterday. (Sometimes insomnia is not a bad thing.)
Here is a lace edging:
That is the start of a sweater, similar in style to the last lace pullover I made. The edging is the bottom edge of the back of the sweater. I knit the edging sideways, then turned it and picked up stitches along the long straight edge:
And I am knitting a body pattern up from there.
This is Hand Maiden Swiss Mountain Silk in the “Boreal” colorway. The Camp Loopy Project III must use at least 800 yards of yarn — this will likely use more than 1200 yards, so I am good there. I’m using a U.S. size 6 (4mm) needle — one 0f my beloved Signature Circulars.
I cannot tell you how much I love Swiss Mountain Silk. I was very pleased to see that The Loopy Ewe got a new shipment of it and it went up in yesterday’s shop update.
There is a distinct possibility that I ordered more of it for another sweater.
One week from today, Wendy Knits Lace will be published. It seems like I’ve been waiting forever!
And in twelve days I’m starting a new job, in a different federal agency. This Friday is my last day at my current job (where I have been for ten years). I am taking next week off from work. I have special friends coming to stay with me and go to my book release party with me on August 27. Y’all are invited to that as well! Then I’ll start my new job on August 29.
As long as she comes home so I can sleep in her lap, I don’t care what else she does.
