Have you had snow yet? We have had a few little flurries and as soon as it turns cold, I want to be knitting bigger, warmer, comfy-er things. How about you? So we have rounded up some projects that are 800+ yards that you all have done and shared with us. Take a look at:
Are you thinking you can’t knit or crochet that much? I’m always impressed with how many people complete projects in the 800+ yards category for our Camp Loopy August challenges. Until Camp Loopy started (back in 2011), I had never stuck with one large project of that size before. I was amazed at how quickly it went, when I put all of my other projects away for the month. And actually, that one ended up being 2600 yards instead of 800+ yards. One of just two things I have crocheted. (Here’s a link to that project.) It was a good lesson for me. And I hope it encourages you to take on a project that might be bigger than you think you can do!
We’ll share more ideas again next week, but I hope this gets you thinking about some fun (and warm, and large 800+ yards projects) to work on this winter!
