I was taken by surprise earlier this week when The Loopy Ewe announced the requirement for August. This month is going by quicker than I thought.
The requirement is to make showstopper project using at least 800 yards of yarn. Yikes that a big one. I’ve wanted a new top or two for summer wear. That is why I’m stretching myself this month knitting a top. I decided that since I have another pattern in mind I should just go all out and knit another top. The Birdwatcher is a fingering weight too designed by Casapinka. I’ve loved knitting her patterns in the past so I thought this was a good choice. It’s a casual top that would fit well in my life.
The yarn I picked is Malabrigo sock in carnival. It’s a wild yarn compared to my usual gray/black/blue color scheme.
I’m hoping this will all work out. I guess we’ll find out when August rolls in.
