It seemed like forever for the Loopy Academy announcement to be made but today, it was made! I was pleasantly surprised that the minimum yardage requirements for each project is 225 yards. That’s very do-able, without feeling rushed.
The projects are:
- Pillow – something made from Worsted or Bulky weight. I’m going to make Handspun Cushion and use Cascade 220 in the same color (Straw) as the little blanket I finished for the last Camp Loopy project.
- A project that has textured stitches in the body. I’m going to make Hinagiku Hat, which was one suggested by the Loopy elves. I’m going to use Shibui Baby Alpaca in the color Green Tea.
- A project that has cables. I’m going to make Knotted Pine, another suggestion from the elves. I’m going to use Malabrigo Silky Merino in Azules. I have Azules in another weight yarn to make a sweater so hopefully the colors will be close enough that I can wear them together and have a set that matches.
The knitting can begin as soon as the yarn arrives and has to be completed by December 31, 2015. Gosh, that sounds like a long time from now but it really isn’t! It will be here before we know it and I can’t wait . . cold weather! 🙂
