It’s time to start planning your July projects for Camp Loopy! (Remember – this is a virtual camp. You can participate from the comfort of your own home. No travel involved. We just like to pretend we’re going somewhere.)
Each month this summer (June, July and August) we are knitting (or sewing) a different project. You can participate for one month, two months, or all three months. We’ll announce the challenge approx. two weeks before the month starts, to give you time to pick a pattern and order. There is no official sign up – just put your order in and indicate in the order notes that you’re participating in Camp Loopy with us this summer. Of course there are benefits to participating, and we have contests, drawings, and fun going on all summer long surrounding Camp Loopy. We hope you will join us! Here are the details:
Project Two Yarn – The July Challenge: This project needs to be knit or crocheted between 7/1 and 7/31 (with a photo of the completed project uploaded to our Project Two Photo Gallery by 8/1).
Theme: Buried Treasure. You just never know what you’re going to find buried, do you? The challenge this month is to make something that has been in your Ravelry queue or on your Ravelry favorites list (or on your internal “must make” list) for more than a year. It has been buried in your list – now it is time to unearth it! Your project must use a minimum of 600 yards in this single project. (A single project meaning one item, not sets of things like a hat/scarf combo, matching shawls for you and a friend, etc.) If you don’t have a Ravelry list, or yours doesn’t go back that far, you can also take a peek at a friend’s list and “unearth” something from their list. Pirates do things like that, you know. 😉
Theme: Buried Treasure. More fun with buried treasure! (Or buried project ideas…) The challenge this month is to make something that has been on your internal “must make” list for more than a year. It has been buried in your list – now it is time to unearth it. Pick a pattern that uses a total of 3 yards (or more) of fabric.
We are offering a 15% Camp Loopy discount for the yarn or fabric you are going to use for your project during “Camp Loopy Store Week” each month. The discount for Project Two, is valid for one project’s worth of yarn/fabric during Camp Store Week Two (June 8-15). To get the discount, you will need to leave us an order note on the order, telling us which yarn or fabric will be used for your Camp Project. We’ll apply the discount when your order comes through to us. If you’re going for free shipping in the U.S., please make sure that your discount won’t take you below the $100 free shipping level, or the website will add the shipping charge back in after we do the discount.
