Camp Loopy 2012 Project One

I finished two items  for the first project of Camp Loopy 2012.  The first challenge was to knit a project of at least 400 yards by a designer from another country. I picked two patterns by designer Martina Behm and managed to finish them both.

Pattern: Hitchhiker
Needle: US Size3

Pattern:  22.5 Degrees
Needles: US Size 4

I made a slight modification. I crocheted the scallops instead of knitting them.

Cast on for project two is tomorrow. The challenge is to knit a project of at least 800 yards. A color in the project must be from your country's flag.  Stay tuned!

A PreK Graduation

Congratulations to my grandson Naseem who graduated from Pre Kindergarten today. May this be the first of many graduations.

WWW Knit in Public Day

It was WW Knit in Public Day over at Woolbearers last Saturday.  There were a few vendors selling yarn, fleece, etc. There was even  a shearing demo. And of course there were a lot of  people knitting, crocheting, weaving, spinning and chatting.  The weather was perfect.

I was able to stay for awhile and work on this project - my second Camp Loopy project, more on that later!

Citron Shawlette

I started this project last May when I was vacationing at the Outer Banks of NC. I kept it for a traveling project. Since it has been over a year since starting it, I decided it was time to finish it. It will most likely be a gift for someone later on down the road.

Pattern: Citron, Designer: Hilary Smith Callis
Yarn: Malabrigo Yarn Lace, Color: Stone Blue
Needles: Size 6 US

Now there is a crochet version of this shawl, Criton.  I may make one soon.
