Campy Loopy Project One

This is my Camp Loopy Project one:


It’s a scarf that I am knitting from Alisha Goes Around Tracks of Bison fingering weight yarn. The yarn is 90% merino wool and 10% bison. It’s a nice yarn — very pleasant to knit. I am using the “Diadem” colorway.

The pattern is one that I just made up — garter stitch with a simple lace edging. I weighed my skein before starting so I can knit according to weight. The increase section took 12 grams so I will knit the straight section until there is just a bit more than 12 grams left, then I’ll do the decrease section to match the increase section and use every bit of the yarn.


I started knitting this shortly after midnight on June 1 and I’ve used up close to half the skein, so I shouldn’t have any issues finishing by the Camp Loopy deadline, the end of June. I have set aside my not-Viajante but will go back to working on that when this peice is done.


The winner of my review copy of Uncommon Cards by Jeanne Williamson is Eileen Bunn, who has been emailed.

WendyKnits Summer Mystery Shawl 2013

The first part of the mystery shawl pattern was released on June 1. The pattern cost is still 50% off until June 8. So if you wanted to join in the KAL, you still have plenty of time to get the pattern at the reduced price, here.
