Camp Loopy July Project

Happy July! I am very happy to be working on my July Camp Loopy project:


This is a shawl pattern called Sur le chemin de l’école. The directive for this project, lifted from The Loopy Ewe blog:

Theme: Buried Treasure. You just never know what you’re going to find buried, do you? The challenge this month is to make something that has been in your Ravelry queue or on your Ravelry favorites list (or on your internal “must make” list) for more than a year. It has been buried in your list – now it is time to unearth it! Your project must use a minimum of 600 yards in this single project.

I really don’t queue things in Ravelry, but I do favorite patterns, so I looked back and found this pattern that I had favorited quite a long time ago. So long ago that I had no recollection of the pattern, but I love it. It is very entertaining because there’s a lot going on! I’m using Madelinetosh Pashmina in the “Rain Water” colorway, a total of over 1000 yards, so it meets the yardage requirement for the project.


Because this is a holiday weekend, I predict a lot of progress by the next post!



  1. Loki looks annoyed. Is he not so fond of fireworks?

  2. That is so pretty. The pattern has such depth to it and the colorway adds depth, too. I guess that’s appropriate for a buried treasure! 😉

    May you and Loki have a wonderful 4th! 🙂

  3. This color though! <3

  4. I love the color variation in MadTosh – annoying for sweaters, but perfect for shawls. What an interesting pattern.

    I hope you don’t live around crazy people who likw to shoot off fireworks at 11pm!

  5. Does this mean since is a July project you have to finish by the end of July? Wow you are ambitious.

    It is lovely!

  6. In combination, the stitch and yarn impart such depth and texture. Lovely!
