Yep, I am a proud camper this year! Last year I tried and it didn't work out, but this year I was committed.
All 3 projects are for me. So there!
The first one is the Skoosh Shawl. The criteria was to be inspired by a favorite book, movie, etc. Using the line ‘never before have we clothed strangers in the garb of our people’ from Lord of the Rings, I made this shawl. And in orange not green, because I could. It lives at work in my cube for days when the A/C is going too strong in one building or room or another.
The second one is the Lincoln Cardi. This one was to be about a vacation. I was going to start it on vacation, so I was thinking something to do with either Laura Ingalls Wilder or Mount Rushmore, but oh no. My family stepped in and said Washington DC, pandas and cherry blossoms. OK, then. So I hunted and found this pattern in a book called Capitol Knits and thankfully you can buy just the one pattern. I made it in pink from a yarn by Lorna’s Laces that is named Galena, which is where General Grant is from. Did I tell you I’m from Illinois?
The third one is Leaf Top. This one was to be in your favorite colors, but I already did that with the Lincoln Cardi. So this time, I took a cue from the Preppy Handbook, and went with useful (‘Useful” is used as often as “cute” in a girl’s wardrobe.). A cream colored short sleeve sweater. The first 30 rows were the design, so I took that one row at a time. The rest was plain TV or car knitting and that went fast enough.
So it was a successful Camp Loopy.
And I finish just to find out about Loopy Academy. ZOMG!
