July Camp Loopy

I’ve started Derecho, my July Camp Loopy project. It’s a top down short sleeve t-shirt. The yarn is Bamboo Pop by Universal Yarn in the brambles color.

I played around with a swatch on Wednesday. My gauge was “close enough” to pick a size. My intention is to try on as I go and adjust as best I can.

Yesterday I cast on and completed the edge of the neck. So far all is going well. The instructions make sense and the yarn feels fantastic. It’s super soft with a nice drape.

The theme for Camp this summer is circus. The rug in the photo was my mother’s. She had it in her living room and now I have it in mine. On H’s first visit after the rug had been delivered to my mother’s house she asked why Nanny bought a rug with a scary clown edge. I can’t unsee that scary clown no matter how hard I try. Let’s hope the clowns at Loopy Circus Camp aren’t scary and things go well with my project.

  1. Oh, yes – I can easily see a scary clown! But it’s pinned in place on the rug, and the rug goes perfectly with your color.

  2. Clowns have never scared me. Many other things do but not clowns. I love the color of that yarn and I can’t wait to see the results of this project

    The run-of-the-mill clowns don’t scare me but there are some proper scary clown masks out there. Your rug clown isn’t too scary
