I have a few finished projects to share. It feels good to get projects done, but I also have several projects waiting in “immediate-progress” (meaning in an ottoman in my family room that hides my most recent cast-ons), as opposed to the projects that are in “stalled-progress” and tucked away in my craft room in the basement….) In immediate-progress:
– Sandbank out of Wollmeise Lace. (I tried one on in Claudia’s Wollmeise shop in Germany in December. The fit is wonderful. I don’t think the pattern photos do it justice.)
– Line Break out of a new yarn
– Architexture out of Hedgehog Sock
– Reyna out of Fresh from the Cauldron
– Pool and Conquer out of Wollmeise Lace
– And this list is not counting the quilts that I need to work on because I have a fabric problem. Or rather, a fabric buying problem. Not that it’s really a problem at all.
– It also doesn’t include the multitude of beautiful skeins I have added to my stash over the past several months, as we’ve added in so many gorgeous lines and wonderful new indie dyers. Nor does it include the skeins that have come from new indie dyers that we have yet to add to the website, but whose skeins I am itching to cast on.
Clearly I need more time in the day.
On to finished projects (which you may have seen if you follow us on Instagram or if you follow me on my own Instagram account.)
This new yarn from Malabrigo is on order and coming soon, but I was able to get one of the sample skeins and knitted it up. This is Caracol, a new bulky that comes with 95 yards to the skein and the pattern is Waltz through the Forest Cowl. I’ll let you know as soon as this arrives!
Then my June Camp Loopy project was done in our June Blue Moon Exclusive colorway, Lake Dillon. The pattern is Fractal Danger. Although I call this one a Fractured Fractal because my row count got off and I didn’t “fracture” enough times. But I still like the scarf. 🙂
My July Camp Loopy project was done in Madelinetosh Pashmina in the Celadon colorway. The pattern is Quaker Ridge Shawlette (which has been a buried treasure in my favorites list for a long time.) I have never done a beaded bindoff where every stitch had a bead, so that was new and interesting (and time consuming…)
So have you been working on anything besides Camp projects this summer? And do your stalled-progress things outnumber your immediate-progress things? Because my projects might also be out of control.
P.S. Thanks for all of the great pattern suggestions for Camp Loopy Project Three in August! We drew a name and Marilee from St. Louis, MO is the winner of our $50 Loopy Gift Certificate!
