Camp Loopy August Plan

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.

  3. That yarn will go GREAT with your gray/black/blue wardrobe! Will it really take 800 yds? I like the lace detail at the bottom – but I’d have trouble leaving well enough alone, and probably would have to repeat it at the shoulders! I’ll be interested to see how cropped you make it; there seems to be some variety in the photos. Have fun!
