Logan's Whippoorwill

I'm all finished with Logan's Whippoorwill, AKA Camp Loopy 2011 Project 1! I used Hand Maiden Sea Silk in Ivory for the main color and Shibui Knits Silk Cloud in Ivory for the contrast color. I love the way the two textures worked together and it finally hit me last Friday what this was reminding me of. You know how when the waves come in on the sand and they've just started to go back into the ocean, they leave that foam for just a couple of seconds? That's what this reminds me of. The main color is the sand and the contrast color is the foam just between the wave and the sand. Also, it matches Logan.

This is a great pattern, easy to do and it goes quickly. I do recommend double checking your stitch count periodically, but the designer gives you stitch counts throughout the pattern.

On Friday we find out what Project 2 will be, but don't worry if you're still working on Project 1 - we've got until July 15 to get this first one finished!

Some fellows get called a "handsome dog", as in "you handsome dog, you!" They must have seen Logan posing.

I love the waves analogy - just beautiful!

Wow... I really love those two yarns together-- delicate and lovely, waves and sand. Gorgeous (oh, and you too, Logan)!

Logan is one well-dressed dog! Your shawl looks lovely - wear it in the best of health.

Your description of the shawl and waves and "sea foam" reminded me of my childhood. I lived on a beach when growing up in RI. I just might have to find those colors and do a shawl like that.
Thanks for the help on the yarns yardage. There is no label but I'm pretty sure it's Shaefer's Trenna, a cobweb/very fine lace weight. Hoping there's enough.
Logan is beautiful! And a great match for your shawl.

Logan and his invisibility cloak - a very nice pairing. Love the colors for both.
