I could be psychic! No, I didn’t say psychotic! 🙂 This morning when my eyes popped open, the first thought in my head was “Maybe today Sheri will tell us what the second Camp Loopy project will be!” In reality, I had looked back to see at what point in the month she usually tells us and since she doesn’t blog every day but Wednesday is a blog day for her, it stood to reason that it would be today and it is!
The second project (my condensed version): A project listed on Ravelry that has been made or queued by at least 1,000 other folks and uses 500 or more yards. Sheri listed a whole bunch of projects in her blog post. I went through them all and went through my Ravelry library and my favorites. I came up with these:
Pamuya – I’ve been wanting to make this one for a long time.
Lintilla – I like all of Martina Behm’s patterns!
Hitchhiker – This one has also been in my library forever. This is another Martina Behm design.
Because during the month of July, a certain little toddler will be here for a week, I need something really easy. I think I could do either Lintilla or Hitchhiker without paying much attention to the pattern. Pamuya may require more effort on my part so I’m going to rule it out. Both Lintilla or Hitchhiker require 2 skeins of most fingering weight yarns (a bit over 550 yards) so I’m going to go ahead and choose the yarn and get it ordered and I’ll decide on a pattern later.
Before you ask . . I’m working on the first project. It has to have about 200 stitches on each side and as of now, I have about 125 stitches. As it progresses, those rows get longer and take forever! I’ll get it done .. Vince has several medical appointments in Abilene before the end of the month so that gives me lots of knitting time. It’s kinda sad to look forward to sitting in the waiting room at a doctor’s office just so I can have time to knit, huh?
