Camp Loopy


out of St Louis 
is having a KAL
on Ravelry 

Since I am in only one other KAL
I decided that I'm in the mood for camping this summer.

The gist of Camp Loopy is to KAL three projects this summer.
Project I is to be a two-color shawl, cowl, cape, whathaveyou.

Since I was busy finishing up Hang Ten KAL I wasn't able to participate in Wendy's Summer Mystery Shawlette KAL
I figured  Camp Loopy is the perfect time to give it a try.

Ordered my yarn from The Loopy Ewe on Monday and it arrived yesterday while Debbie and I were on Day 2 of the Mid-Missouri Shop Hop.
Our Road Trip will be another post another day
Believe me, we hot footed it home from The Lakes when Hubby phoned with the news of it's arrival.  
It was Debbie's day driving so we made record time between The Lakes and Jeff.


I've chosen two dee-lish yarns from TLE.


The Loopy Ewe Solid is Brick  and will be the contrasting color to
The main color  - - - -
Fiberphile [varigated] Tree Peony..

Well, did you expect any other colorway from me?


Simply dee-lish.
and
sooo  squeezable 

Both 100% Superwash Merino Wool 2-ply fingering weight
7-8 spi using #0-3 needles.

Hubby and I wound them into cakes this afternoon
and I'll be swatching this evening
in between working on Bridge of Roses socks I mentioned in previous posts.

Well, back to being lazy and knitting.

hugs to ya'

  1. Gerry, you always pick the prettiest yarns for your projects. Since I finished my one sock, I have been busy cleaning out rooms and putting in new hardwood flooring. My house is destroyed! I am hoping to pick up the needles tonight. Enjoy your swatching!

  4. Beautiful colors together! I was going to do the Loopy Camp, but I really don't need to add to the stash. I might just do it for fun and add pictures without buying for it. :)

    Looking forward to seeing your shawl!
