Camp Loopy has officially begun! Are you camping along with us this summer? It’s not too late to start. We get orders out FAST, so pop over to read about our June assignment (adult campers and kids campers) and then click over to The Loopy Ewe to pick out your supplies. We’ll get them right out.
I am making the Tilted Texture shawl with a skein (or two) of Wollmeise. I love texture in a project, and this one looked like it wouldn’t get boring to knit. (Thankful for all of the Loopy Groupies on our Ravelry board who shared pattern ideas for June. This one came directly from all of them!) You know you can click at the top of any Ravelry thread and see all patterns mentioned in that thread, right? So handy.
Because it’s the start of Camp and because it’s the weekend and because it was time for a contest – we have one for you. I borrowed this idea from Loopy Office Manager Lynn, who used it as a contest on her Lularoe page. Reading the answers made me laugh, so I hope it does the same to you! To enter the contest, just leave the name of the pattern you are making for camp. BUT – wherever there is a vowel in the title, replace it with “oodle”. Not doing Camp this year? You can still enter the contest. Just leave your own name with “oodle” in place of the vowels. Are you up for the tongue twisting challege?
We’ll be drawing for one of our fun new canvas bags (I’m partial to the rabbit in the wheelbarrow), and you can pick which one you want if you’re the winner!
We also have another photo challenge for you. Our last challenge was to post your dinosaur with your Camp yarn with the hasthtag #camploopy2017, and Toe789 on Instagram won that challenge! The new challenge is to show a picture of your project this week as you get it started, with the hashtag #junecamploopy2017. You can share the photos on your Instagram or Facebook pages, or our Facebook page.* Just be sure to add the hashtag, because that’s how we find you to enter you in the random drawing. The winner will get 100 extra Loopy Reward Store bonus points!
June Monthly Mixers! Each month we issue a project challenge for yarn and fabric, just for fun. This month, it’s about making things for summer. The yarn challenge is to make a shawl or scarf for summer. The fabric challenge is to make a tablecloth or placemats for summer. We can’t wait to see your projects!
