Camp Loopy has started and despite Vince’s threat, he did not withdraw me from Camp Loopy! You know me . . I would never try to talk someone into doing something but . . there are advantages to doing Camp Loopy. You get a discount, you get a prize at the end if you do all three session, it’s good, friendly competition . . even if you don’t finish, it’s fun!
I think this is my third summer to participate in Camp Loopy. No . . maybe it’s the 4th summer. I can’t remember. All I know for sure is that during the summer of 2011, we were moving and that was quite a crazy summer. Every year about this time, I come up with a million reasons why I can’t or shouldn’t do Camp Loopy but I know the minute it starts, and everyone else is doing it, I would be so sad if I weren’t do it. I’m in!
So, for the first camp session, we have to use a single skein of lace weight or fingering weight yarn and use at least 375 yards. And, it has to be a yarn we’ve never used before. One skein of yarn! I don’t have a clue what I will make but half the fun for me is going through all the patterns on Ravelry and planning and scheming. I don’t know why I feel the need to order my yarn the instant I know what the rules are. We can’t start til June 1 but .. I ordered my yarn yesterday as soon as I saw Sheri’s blog post.
The yarn I ordered is Three Irish Girls Adorn Sock in the color Storm Brew. (I don’t know if that link will work once they run out of yarn and there’s only one skein left as of the writing of this post.)
After spending hours, literally, going through patterns, I’ve narrowed it down to these . . but I could add more to the list! 🙂
The real problem with Camp Loopy is that on Ravelry, everyone is showing the yarn they ordered and what they’re going to make and I want to order all the yarn and buy all the patterns. That’s not good!
Right now, I’m leaning towards Storm Warning, or Summer Flies, or . . maybe 3S Shawl. Heck . . I don’t have a clue what I’ll make.
