WIP Wednesday: Camp Loopy Edition

There has been a change of plan. While I really like the Venomous Tentacula I decided I wanted to knit something else with this yarn. After an exhaustive search I decided on My Hope by Laura Linneman. First the name got me. Doesn’t “My Hope” seem like it belongs in every current conversation. Second the beads go in the last row for added weight. That is my favorite way to use beads. So I cast on and knit 30 rows. Wasn’t thrilled with the way it looked so I did a little research on the Indian Cross stitch and decided to use KnitPurlHunter’s method. There is a great video on YouTube. So what you see above was the first attempt. I have ripped it out and started over. I suspect if you go back and read my first post on each Camp Loopy project I will have ripped it out and started again. It’s just the way I roll.

  1. Is it just me, or does this look like you have knitted a moustache? I like the idea of the beads at the edge for weight.

    That’s just the way life rolls isn’t it, a lot of trial and error. But better to be happy with the project than regret the the time spent making it less than perfect.

  7. That yarn is lovely – it will go really well with your pattern 🙂 That is a cool-looking stitch, but tricky for sure!

    I often do the same. It’s as though the first attempt at the project gives you a feel for what you’re doing. Get the rhythm and the idea of the thing. Then rip it all out and start over knowing how it is suppose to go and make any changes that that trial run helped you decide on. Love the yarn. I need to start buying more variegated yarn.
