I am so pleased to say that I have completed my first Camp Loopy project! The pattern is Stitch Surfer by Louise Robert. The yarn is Biscotte & Cie in Paturage purchased as a kit from The Loopy Ewe. I totally enjoyed knitting these socks BUT I have to give credit to Diane of the Knitabulls podcast. She has made a fantastic 3-part video tutorial walking, well, knitting, through the pattern that has many tips that she figured out knitting this pattern a dozen times! I found the tutorial so helpful. Not only was I able to knit socks that I love but she demystified magic loop and knitting socks from the toe up. I found her choice of the Turkish cast on to be perfect for the pattern and for me to use for other toe up socks. I feel like I can give toe up patterns a more serious look now that I have knit these. In the past I avoided toe up patterns unless I could flip them to cuff down. Thank you Diane for being so generous with your time and sharing your knitting knowledge. I highly recommend this pattern and the tutorial for anyone looking for a fun pattern that isn’t nearly as difficult as it looks.
