FO Friday: Camp Loopy June 2020

I am pleased to say I finished my first Camp Loopy Project. I like to get the June project done as quickly as I can. That way I can carry the momentum into July and August when the yarn requirements increase to a minimum of 600 and 800 yards.

My June project is the My Hope shawl by Laura Linneman. The yarn is Leading Men Fiber Arts Show Stopper in yarn hoarder. The pattern is easy to knit and understand. I used Knit Purl Hunter’s YouTube Cross 6 (Indian Cross) video to do the crossing without a cable needle. The yarn is lovely. It’s quite fine fingering weight which gives the shawl a light feeling. The beads, which I placed on every other stitch are 6/0 gunmetal iris. (The beads are an iridescent that looks green, blue or gold depending on the angle. They aren’t as blue as the photo below shows.) The beads add just enough weight to the shawl without making it feel heavy.

I really enjoyed knitting this shawl. It went quickly for the most part though those last 3 rows of crossing stitches did take nearly a day each.

  1. First I thank you. I was benefited by reading this post, which was very useful for me. My knowledge has increased. I have read a lot of blogs before, but I did not get as much advantage as I did when reading this blog. I like the way you write your blog, method of writing. Write the same blog and keep giving everyone knowledge.
