What is it about a challenge that I cannot walk away from? The Loopy Ewe‘s second quarter challenge is to do something stranded, uses less than 500 yards and only 2 colors. First, I’ve never done stranded work. Second, I don’t need any more yarn and I surely don’t need another project. I looked through Ravelry and probably considered 30 or more patterns. Then I said . . no! I’m going to skip the second quarter challenge because MadMay is coming up (Madelinetosh knitting marathons during the month of May) and then Camp Loopy starts June 1 and runs through August.
But then . . the “challenge” got the best of me!
In the end, Fjord by Paulina Popiolek, won out and that’s what I’m going to do. The yarn ordered for the project is Cascade Superwash Sport and the colors are Daffodil and Banana Cream . . a golden yellow and a light yellow, which will go with one of Nicole’s coats.
Another pattern that caught my attention, but has nothing to do with the challenge was this:
Wurm . . I’m sure in another language it doesn’t mean “worm”, but . . maybe it does. I think it looks like a fun hat to knit, as well as wear.
Anyone else doing Loopy Ewe’s second quarter challenge? If so, what are you making?
