It’s time to share our August challenge for Loopy Circus Camp! Remember, this is a virtual camp, so all are welcome and no traveling involved. Even if you didn’t participate in June or July, you’re still welcome to join Camp Loopy in August.
This month we are celebrating the Main Event. The Act to top all Acts. The Best Act of the evening. The Showstopper! So pick something that is worthy of being showcased in the main ring. It could be something that challenges your skills, or something that wows with color. It could be something that incorporates multiple stitches, or something that is simple but mighty. What says Showstopper to you? Your August project must use 800 or more yards, single knit.
Camp Store Week:
We are offering a 15% discount on the yarn you are using for your August project, between July 12-19, 2021.
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 July 12, 2021, or later.
- Project must use at least 800 yards, worked single (or 1600, if held double).
- Project must not be started before August 1, and must be completed by August 30.
- A photo of the completed project must be emailed to us by September 1. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Need ideas? Color opinions? Project encouragement? Join us on Ravelry in the Loopy Groupies, or on Facebook in our Loopy Ewe Knitting Circle. We all love brainstorming and seeing what everyone is working on!

I know how to knit shawls and I am desperate to knit a sweater and see the Bulky Sweater but I live in Florida. How can the yarn be changed to a lighter knit sweater so I can wear same????? Since I am having surgery and will be home a long time, this would be so much fun!!!
Hi Janet – you could try this one (http://www.dreareneeknits.com/shop/the-weekender-light?category=sweater). It’s knit in a fingering weight, which is a lot lighter than bulky yarn.
