Yesterday the August Camp Loopy project requirements were announced. I am so glad I spent time looking at projects early. I was able to then concentrate on yarn. What I ended up ordering is Cascade 220 in greystone heather. So I am committed on the yarn. I’m not totally decided on a pattern yet but I am leaning towards Dayton. It’s the one that looks like something I would want to wear.
Now, here is something that shows how set in my ways I am. I spent about 20 minutes comparing the colors of the yarn on The Loopy Ewe web site to the ones on the Cascade web site. There were a number of colors I liked but I had concerns about how they would look in person. I really liked liberty heather but I thought it might be too purple. I also liked Vashon Island heather but being brown it doesn’t go with most of my clothes. I decided not to fuss and just picked something I like: the exact yarn I used for my Hug vest. Oops! I’ll have to pay better attention next time or everything I knit will be greystone heather.
