Camp Loopy is about to commence (on June 1) and I’m very lucky . . despite Vince’s threat to withdraw me from Camp, he has not done so . . yet! I’ve kept a pretty low profile when it comes to knitting . . specifically those “boxes of fun”. It’s not easy to hide boxes when we don’t have trash pickup and the only way to get rid of them is for Vince to take them, along with the rest of the trash, to the landfill.
And it doesn’t help that (1) I have no willpower and (2) there’s been Wollmeise DK yarn added a couple of times recently.
I got this . . the three skeins of green to make Vodka Lemonade (a cardigan . . not a drink!). Have you ever known me to make a cardigan? NO! Have you known me to buy other yarn for cardigans? YES!
Today while trying to decide what pattern to use for my first Camp Loopy project, I came across this pattern.
It’s French Cancan and I love those big cables! This pattern won’t work for the first Camp Loopy project because it has to be lace weight or fingering weight yarn but you never know what the next projects might be. And, they had more Wollmeise DK and they had a perfect color for Nicole so I had to order that. The yardage required is so close to only needing one skein but it might need just a tad on a second skein so I bought two skeins, hoping it only takes one and I can make myself one too.
But that still doesn’t solve the problem of what to make for Camp Loopy’s first project which starts day after tomorrow. This is my yarn.
If I had known what I was going to make when I ordered my yarn, I probably wouldn’t have ordered this. I would have gone with something more solid. When I made my order, I was thinking I’d wimp out and make plain Jane socks but, unless I change my mind again tomorrow, I think I’m not making socks.
If I were starting today, and I’m not, I think I’d make this.
All my knitting friends (OK . . there’s only 2 of them) have made this. So, as of 2:35 p.m. on May 30, my mind is definitely made up to make this but as of 2:36, I may have changed my mind! 🙂
If you’re doing Camp Loopy, what are you making?
