It’s time to share our July challenge for Loopy Circus Camp! Remember, this is a virtual camp, so all are welcome and no traveling involved. You can participate all three months (June, July, August), or just pick the months that work best for you.
This month we are celebrating stripes – like the stripes of the big top tent! You can do stripes of color, stripes of sections of stitches, stripes of beads, etc. Just so your project has stripes of some sort going on. (see some examples below). The July project must use 600 or more yards, single knit.
Camp Store Week:
We are offering a 15% discount on the yarn you are using for your July project, between June 14-21.
You will need to leave us an order comment telling us which specific yarn will be used for your project. If there isn’t a note, then we won’t be able to apply the discount.
Also, please note that you are welcome to use Loopy credit OR the discount. We aren’t able to add both. If we see that you’ve used Loopy credit, we’ll not add in a discount on top of that.
To receive Camp Points for your project, please make sure you check these boxes:
- Yarn for the project must be purchased from The Loopy Ewe June 14, 2021, or later.
- Project must use at least 600 yards, worked single (or 1200, if held double).
- Project must not be started before July 1, and must be completed by July 31.
- A photo of the completed project must be emailed to us by August 1. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
