Loopy Academy Talented and Gifted Edition Plan

Yesterday I was telling you about the latest edition of Loopy Academy. By way of explanation for anyone who isn’t sure what I’m talking about, The Loopy Ewe is a yarn shop in Colorado who runs fun challenges on their blog for their world wide customers. I’ve participated in a bunch and really enjoy the little push to try things that are outside my comfort zone. I’ve really expanded my skills too. The blog has a post that tells all about the challenge. The original Loopy Academy runs concurrently with the new challenges so if you’re interested in any part jump in and join the fun.

I’ve decided to use Casapinka as the designer for my projects. I’ve picked out three patterns and ordered yarn. Today I’ll tell you about the patterns. We’ll talk about the yarn once it arrives.

The patterns are:

I have until December 31, 2020 to complete these projects. I think it’s doable even with the other things I have planned. Have you got projects planned for the fall? What will you be making?

    That’s such a fun thing to do and helpful to the shop too in these difficult times. I’ve joined a couple of groups where we knit online via zoom so I’ve learned new techniques and made friends which is brilliant for a knitter who lives alone. I’ve learned brioche stitch and knitted a hat and also found a cowl pattern in The Knitter magazine which I made. I’ve also learned different ways to do short row shaping. Just before lockdown in the UK a new lys opened and to keep going she started online ordering and local delivery so I’ve done that a few times and now she’s open again I’ve been in 3 times so far. I love your patterns, they’ll be great to make and I’ll watch out for progress photos!

    I like the look of that dropped stitch shawl. Maybe I will try it.
    Have fun with Loopy Challenge. The blogville knitters will be happy to see your progress.

    I pretty much hate everything I already have started, which means I should probably suck it up and start something new.

  6. I believe you were the one to inspire me to take on the Heelix socks – I have yarns from a Christmas gift,last year that are perfect. One heel and halfway down the foot of sock #1 so far.

  7. I ordered yarn and more needles from Loopy Ewe last night and I thought of you as I clicked the button to complete my purchase. I really miss going up there, but Fort Collins is kind of ground zero for extreme wildfire smoke right now, so I’m relying on the mail. I need to check out the Academy, but I have so many projects going on that I hate to take on something new. I’m drowning in shawls and sweaters right now, and I keep reminding myself that I need to get going on knitting a couple of little kitties for presents. So many knits, so little time. 🙂

    I just love Casapinka. Great choices!

    I may need to start Christmas Hats next week if I am going to hope to have 5 done by December with the way I haven’t been knitting! LOL

  10. Great choices and I think they’ll be perfect with some variegated yarns. The last one I can see easily being done in crochet too. Look forward to seeing your progress.
