Three-Day Weekend

First of all, congratulations to Beth, who was chosen as the winner of my review copy of  Warm Days, Cool Knits: Lighter Designs for Every Season by Corrina Ferguson. Beth has been emailed.

It’s Day Three of a three-day weekend here in the U.S. and three-day weekends are really good for knitting progress!Here is my progress on my Camp Loopy July project.


The colorwork is mosaic knitting, so you are only ever knitting with one color at a time, and slipping the stitches in the second color. Colorwork plus a gradient  yarn translates into big entertainment in knitting for me, hence the good progress!


My little helper is pretty tired today, but he is sticking close by!



  1. Colorwork isn’t my strong suit but that piece is lovely … and quite tantalizing ; )

    Beautiful pattern.

    I’ve never done mosaic knitting but I’m sure I could at least use the same size needles as the plain stitch. I have a bad habit of being a loosey goosey knitter when it comes to knitting colorwork. Love your color combo. As for Loki, he looks very comfortable where he is at.
    Hope your weekend was great. Next 3 day weekend coming up soon in September. M

    Gorgeous. I love mosaic work, although I’ve done very little. You might be tempting me to try this pattern. Loki has the right idea, get lots of rest.

  5. BEAUTIFUL!! This is the “next thing” on my knitting bucket list… Maybe I’ll be brave enough before summer is over!

  6. I love that color work pattern. Looks great Wendy!

    Absolutely gorgeous!!!!

  8. No matter if some one searches for his required thing,
    thus he/she desires to be available that
    in detail, so that thing is maintained over here.
