It’s Camp Loopy Time!

What is Camp Loopy? 

It’s a virtual summer program where you make monthly projects according to challenges and you can earn prizes for getting them done. Along the way, we’ll have fun project discussions, contests, and special events for anyone who’d like to participate!

There is no fee to join, and you can participate for one month, two months, or all three months.

Each month we will have a designated Camp Store Week where you can get 15% off of the yarn for the next month’s Camp project. This gives us time to ship it to you before the project start date of the first of the month.

Camp Store Week for June Project: May 12-19
Camp Store Week for July Project: June 11-18
Camp Store Week for August Project: July 10-17

2020 Camp Rewards

This summer, the prize for completing the different months is a Camp Kit – and you determine how much comes in your kit by how many months of Camp you complete!

For completing one month of Camp, your kit will include: our new, exclusive Loopy Science Code pattern
For completing two months of Camp, your kit will include: the pattern plus two of our favorite notions
For completing all three months of Camp, your kit will include: the pattern, the two notions, and a skein of our Wollmeise Specials in Pure (574 yds. fingering weight) to use for the Loopy Science Code pattern (or whatever you want to use it for!)

We will email patterns and ship out the Camp Kits sometime after the first week in September (when we’ve had a chance to do all of the photo approvals and can see what your kit needs to include).

Camp Store Week: May 12-19 (supplies for your June Project).

To get the discount, leave us an order note and tell us which yarn will be used in your June project and we’ll apply the discount on our end.

If you are going for free shipping in the U.S., please make sure the discount won’t take your order below the $100 level or the website will add the postage cost back onto your order.

Camp discount cannot be combined with other discounts, or used on Last Call yarn.

To be marked as complete for June:

  • Complete the Camp Loopy Challenge for June: In June, we’re celebrating Chemistry. So that challenge is to MIX TWO THINGS for your project. Examples: mix two (or more) colors, or mix yarn with beads, or mix two weights of yarn, or mix parts of two (or more) different patterns, etc.
  • Your project needs to use at least 400 yards. Full yardage must be used in one single project, singly knit (yarn not held double).
  • Your June project supplies need to be purchased from The Loopy Ewe May 12, 2020 or later. 
  • Your June project needs to be knit or crocheted between June 1 and June 30. No early starts!
  • You need to upload a photo of your completed June project to our Loopy Camp Gallery by July 1. 

Loopy Kids Version

We would love for your kids/grandkids/nieces/nephews/neighbor kids to join in on the Loopy Camp fun again this summer. They can choose to do half the yardage requirements (a 200 yard project for June) and will earn a fun knitting notion for each month they get marked as complete. Please help them make their own Loopy Account so we can track their purchases, photos and points.

To celebrate Camp Loopy this summer, you’ll find: 

Camp t-shirts available
Camp Project Bag Tags
Exclusive Exploration Station Camp Colorway in Smooshy with Cashmere and City
Camp Loopy Vintage Tote Bags

All Camp orders will receive a free 2020 Camp Pin, while supplies last. Be sure to leave us that order note, so we know you’re participating in Camp!

Starting June 1, we’ll put up three separate Ravelry Threads in our Loopy Groupies. You choose which one fits your project best.
The Color Lab (for people mixing colors for their June challenge)
The Material Lab (for people mixing yarn bases or beads for their June challenge)
The Pattern Lab (for people mixing parts of patterns for their June challenge)

Not on Ravelry? Head over to Facebook and our Loopy Ewe Knitting Circle, to join in on Camp and other summer project discussions and sharing!

    1. Hi Jane – do you mean what pattern are you supposed to do for Camp? You can pick your pattern based on the challenge criteria. (Or do you mean the reward pattern? That’s a brand new pattern that we did for the Camp Reward. It will be out in September when we send out rewards!)

  1. Hi, I’m thinking about joining camp this year, newbie here. Can I use yarn purchased from TLE from years ago or does it have to be a new purchase? I can verify the purchase from my account order history. Thanks.

    1. Hi Jocelyn! You can definitely use previously purchased yarn from Loopy. The only thing is that it won’t earn you the rewards, but you can join in on all of the discussions, contests, and fun! We require Camp Store Week (or later) purchase for the rewards for two reasons – 1) it helps us fund the rewards, and 2) it helps to insure that people aren’t taking a work-in-progress and finishing it “for Camp”. It levels the playing field for everyone and the projects.

      Glad you’re joining in this year!

  2. Love summer Camp Loopy and planning with this years theme. The hardest thing is remembering to post!

  3. I don’t see where I can leave you an order note letting you know that the yarn I am ordering is for the June Camp Loopy project.

    1. Hi Pam –

      After you put your payment through, it takes you to a confirmation page with a link to leave an order note. If you miss that, you can always log into your Loopy account and see all of your past orders on your account page. Click on any of them to leave a note on the order. Hope that helps!

  4. Hi, Sheri! I ordered my camp yarn and I’m so excited to choose a pattern! I didn’t order in time to get a t-shirt or project bag tag so I’m wondering if you are going to order more of those!? I’m not sure I will have a lot of knitting time with my two littles running around (ages 7 and 3) but I want to try! I love the yarn I found~ Western Sky Knits/ Aspen Sock with Nylon/ “Eagle Mountain” colorway.

    1. Hi Laurie! We probably won’t get more t-shirts. I have tried that before and then I end up with leftovers. We try hard to anticipate numbers each year! On the bag tags – I added more of those this afternoon, so they are in stock again. 🙂

  5. Hi!

    As a science teacher trying to do the best distance teaching I can, I was so excited to see the theme. And then so sad that there are only medium t-shirts left.

    Will you be getting more t-shirts in other sizes?

    Have you ever considered offering women’s t-shirts instead of unisex?

    Thanks!

  6. Regarding the chemistry challenge, would combining knitting and crochet count? I have many ideas and am trying to narrow them down.

  7. Sheri, I would like to be in July”s camp.
    I’m looking for yarn in fingering weight with
    silk added to yarn. It’s for a wedding. I want
    to make a crescent shawl pattern for my
    niece. Can you help me pick a pattern and
    yarn that would do the trick? I see so many
    choices but any light color yarn would do. I
    know I will like any that you pick.

    1. Hi Pauline – we have an email with ideas for you, but it keeps coming back to us due to “spam content”. I think your email provider doesn’t like that we linked to patterns for you in there! If you add us to your Safe Senders list, we can try again!

  8. I just received my Hug Shot shawl kit and want to know if I can use that to join the Summer Camp program. It does have two colors

    Thanks

    1. Hi Mitzi – If you log into your Loopy account and go to your account page, there is a link there to upload photos.
