Yes it's true, I cannot stop knitting. I am enjoying it so!
Today is the start of the first challenge for Camp Loopy. I am making a shawl that is very simple and very bright. I want it to stay at work for those times that the building folks cannot regulate the building temp correctly. This happens more than you know. And if I got back to the ITS building, that place is a meat locker year-round.
I have also set a yarn challenge for myself for this year. I want to finish 12 items this year, so about 1 per month. I have a manageable stash right now and I'd actually like it to reduce by half, if not more.
So here are the first 3 finishes. I'm very excited!
These are handmitts for a girlfriend on her birthday. Renee is modeling them. Yarn is The Loopy Ewe's solid series in barn red. Pattern is Kujeillen.
These are my handmitts, which are larger in diameter because I'm a larger person. Yarn is The Loopy Ewe's Loopy Legends series in Tamra's Day Brightener. How can you go wrong with a yarn called Tamra's Day Brightener?!?!?! Same pattern, but I put a braided cable in my pattern section.
And here are some socks. Same yarn. Pattern is Basic Ribbed Socks.
In the queue for June:
More socks in that red yarn up there. I finished them today but the sock blockers are in use.
A mandala for Attic24.
Camp Loopy June project.
That would get me to 6 projects completed in the first 6 months of the year, which makes me right on track. So yay!
(And yes, there has been some quilting going on too...)
