Camp Loopy Project #3

Look it’s blue!

I suspect this may be the project where I bite off more than I can chew, er, knit. You know what I mean. The third project requirement is to knit something with 800 yards of yarn. Immediately I thought of knitting a sweater. Yes, I know a sweater will take more than 800 yards but I have had this particular pattern bouncing around in my head for a while and this was the perfect excuse to buy the yarn for it. The pattern is Topeka. If you’ve been around here for a while you know I’ve mentioned this pattern before here, and here and here. The yarn I decided on is Cascade superwash sport in Westpoint blue heather. So starting August 1st we’ll see if I can in fact start and finish a sweater in a month or at all based on my recent track record. But first I have to finish my Camp Loopy Project #2.

    Camp Loopy sounds like a lot of fun. Topeka will look lovely in that blue. I’d have a lot of fun picking buttons.

    Oh, I love that pullover pattern! It looks like a great layering piece for fall the way the ladies at Kelbourn Woolens have it styled. It’s going to be gorgeous in blue.

    This color reminds me of the crayon, Cadet Blue. Can’t wait to see more.

    You can do it!!! I have every faith in you.


  7. I love any and all Cascade yarns and that pattern should be quick. Do you knit Continental or English? I really need to improve my Continental skills so I can knit quicker.
