I’ve only knit a couple of rows since you last saw the baby blanket. Honestly knitting a baby blanket on a humid day is not fun. I’ve been doing other things.
The Loopy Ewe announced their fall Loopy Academy. I’ve completed the first 4 years and the graduate school. I thought I was done. Um, no. This year they are doing the Talented and Gifted edition. How can I say no to that! The requirement is to knit or crochet three projects from the same designer. Each project must use at least 400 yards of yarn. There is also the option of doing an extra credit project where you take a design element from a pattern by your chosen designer and reimagine it. Such as use the stitch pattern from a shawl in a pair of socks or a sweater. I’ve picked out the designer who I’ll be studying, Casapinka. She is a new to me designer. I love the bright colors she uses. They are so cheerful. She has patterns that work well with wildly variegated yarn. I do have a soft spot of wildly variegated yarn. I’ve got a tentative plan for patterns but more about that tomorrow. Have you knit any Casapinka patterns? Which do you recommend?
