Camp Loopy Project #2
I have finally started my Camp Loopy Project number 2. Well, actually I started it last week but this is the first time I have shown you anything as proof. For those that don’t bother reading links, this second project is to be a popular pattern that passed you by. I have skipped a fair number of popular projects at the time they were popular so picking out a pattern wasn’t too hard. I knew I wanted to knit another shawl, something fun and casual that I might really use. I decided on Daybreak by Stephen West. I am using The Loopy Ewe Solid Series yarn in blackberry and smoke. The pattern is easy and straight forward though that doesn’t mean the going has been simple. It has taken me four tries to finally get one that stuck. I was having trouble with the m1 increases. These have never been my friend. I have a mental block with left and right. No really, not just with knitting. I have left/right issues. Just ask The Husband about driving when I’m in the passenger seat giving directions. Yes, I can get anywhere. I just can’t tell you which way to go without using pointing and landmarks. So getting those m1l and m1r correct was a challenge. I had to name them something else. Now they are called front and back. I can do front and back.
