New Yarn And My August Camp Loopy Plan

I’m quite excited about both my yarn and project plan for August Camp Loopy. As I expected the requirement is to knit at least 800 yards in either a physical, earth or life science.

The yarn I chose is Stonehedge Fiber Mills shepherd’s worsted wool in granite which meets the earth science geology requirement. The color of the yarn is a heather black.

The pattern I’ve decided on is the Stockholm Slipover by PetiteKnit. It’s a fairly plain stockinette vest. It’s the type of clothing I really like but can rarely find in a store.

It’s optimistic of me to think I can knit about 850 yards in a month but I’ve convinced myself that it will be easy because it’s worsted weight. Don’t remind me that 850 yards is 850 yards no matter what the weight. I won’t listen.

  1. I really feel I do knit worsted/Aran faster than finer yarn. I’m sure of it…though never timed it.

  4. Beautiful vest! I love this pattern. Classic and timeless. One could easily add some colorwork if one desires.

    I love that pattern, and the yarn you chose is going to knit up beautifully. I love a sleeveless sweater, but you are right, you can’t find them in stores.

    Whoa, where have I been? 4 posts to catch up on. Love the nap for Miles, my kind of nap. You can do it! 3200 yards in over 3 months, yes! But don’t look at my non out put in the knit department. Love the yarn and vest pattern. There, did I catch it all?

    It’s totally possible. Unless you end up like me, casting on a million new projects when you’ve got a deadline looming…

  13. 850 yards is 850 yards – but does it tend to split? Does it flow nicely over the needles? Does it feel good in the hands??? I don’t care what weight the yarn is, as long as it behaves nicely!

    You got this! Of course worsted is faster, it is on bigger needles! All those centimeters difference in circumference add up! I think that vest is perfect for real life, and you will be glad to have it. Pretty yarn, too.
