Camp Loopy 2015…

Leave a comment

I´m joining Camp Loopy 2015 – The Safari Edition! (you can read the terms here…)

I ordered 4 skeins of Swans Island Natural Fingering from The Loopy Ewe, in 4 colors, and intend to go on “Safari” in June, July and August – with three different projects – all Jungle inspired…

First up is the June challenge: I spy… and upon ordering the yarn I was put up in the Elephant group. I ordered all the 4 skeins of yarn at the same time – whereas the conditions for joining each month´s challenge calls for three different orders. The cost of shipping (not to mention the exchange rate at the moment…) would make this too expensive – which means I will not be put up for a new group when I enter the July – or August challenge… I´ll just choose my own “Jungle-theme” within the groups- and hope to get away with that…

Since the challenge was: I Spy… what´s more natural than using my own design: “iSpy“, and converting it into a Safari- inspired project?

So, here´s my June entering: “iSpy an Elephant“. It´s 50% done – shown with the inside out – and all the yarn ends left to be weaved in – can´t wait…IMG_6335

I´m a dedicated knitter. I share my house with an unknown amount of wool. My kind of wool seems to multiply like quicksilver, -drop a skein to the floor and you get 10 in return….. (well… get is maybe an exaggeration….) So I keep on knitting to try to get on top of it, enjoying the process, the texture of the yarn and the endless possibilities in creating new garments.
