Almost Time for Camping

I spent all the past week thinking that today was the day we could start our second projects for Camp Loopy but I finally looked at the calendar and it dawned on me. Today is the fourteenth. We can start on the fifteenth. Ah.

It is just as well because I was thinking I wanted to just continue on knitting my lace tunic for a while since I am on a roll. I finished the front, attached the front and back at the shoulders via a three-needle bind-off, and picked up and knit a very narrow garter-stitch neckband.

I’ve done a rather deep v-neck because I’m planning on wearing this over something else — a black dress or cami.

And I’ve started a sleeve.

I will probably start my Camp Loopy at some point over the weekend. We have a month to complete the Camp loopy project and that’s plenty of time for me to knit cabled mittens in DK weight.

Lucy is resting up so that she will be wide awake for scary stories around the campfire this weekend.

Have a great weekend!


  1. It’s looking lovely and you’ll knock out those mittens scary fast, cuz that’s just you.

  2. It’s very pretty and will look great over a black dress or cami.

  3. Your lace tunic is too beautiful for words.
    Will be starting my Camp Loopy Project 2 first thing in the morning!

  4. That tunic is gorgeous! I never thought of myself as a tunic person, but I’m changing my mind…

  5. Wow the tunic is soo pretty already can`t wait to see it when its all done

  6. your lace tunic is lovely – I too am knitting mittens (in florida – who knows why?) I have not even downloaded my pattern yet – need to get on that and see if I even have the correct needle size
    better run and do that now – have a great weekend and enjoy the campfire and scary ghost stories with Lucy to protect you

    Mittens it will be here in TX too! Although it has been in the triple digits for 14 days straight! Is that knitting bag with kitty applique? Very cute! What vendor? The lace will be lovely.

  8. that tunic is breath-taking. I love it!

  9. Loving the tunic!

  10. Gwen has never looked so stylin’…love it!

  11. GeniaKnitz says:

    I love your Lucy. Just sayin’

  12. It’s quite elegant and very very pretty, you just inspired me. I think I will do a lace tunic, but a sleeveless one and wear it with wide belt (after I finish my other trillion things I have in mind…)

  13. Mary Lou says:

    Your tunic is simply lovely! I think you are a rock star knitter!

  14. Liz in Missouri says:

    The Tunic is just lovely!

  15. So this tunic pattern WILL be for sale soon, right? It’s GORGEOUS!

  16. I looked at the month deadline and kind of had a little mental freakout. I’m not sure i can finish a pair of mittens in a month, but I’m going to give it the good old try!

  17. Please please please tell me you’re publishing this one?

  18. Robin F. says:

    Love the tunic and hope the pattern will be forthcoming. I’m just finished with camp loopy project 1 and am ready to start my socks over the weekend.

  19. Lynne S. says:

    I like the tunic, Wendy. Very sharp – can’t wait to see the finished garment.
