It’s June 1st, and that can mean only one thing: It’s the first day of Camp Loopy 2014!
So this morning (well, actually in the wee hours after midnight) I set aside my Array cowl temporarily. Here’s what it looks like now:
It is 7″ deep, so a little more than halfway there, since I want to knit to 12″ deep.
I got out this yarn, which I purchased specifically for my first Camp Loopy project:
This is Schoppel-Wolle Crazy Zauberball in colorway #2081 and Malabrigo Sock Yarn in the “Alcaucil” colorway. Here is the start of my project:
This is Nymphalidea designed by Melinda VerMeer, and it appeared in a recent edition of Knitty.
I actually started a different design and quickly decided it didn’t really work in these yarns, so switched over to this. I had two different patterns picked out as possibilities, so there was no fuss, no muss!
Because I am a loose knitter, I went down one needle size from what was recommended in the pattern, so mine is being knit with a U.S. size 5 needle.
Meanwhile, Loki has gotten into taking selfies while he lounges in my lap.
